THE STORY:

KATE wrote: Yep, that's me. See what Grassroot wrote below, good looking and fast!! Okay, well most of you that know me realize how slow I am! But I am "slogging"  26.2 for GRASSROOT soccer. It's amazing how they are using the universal sport of soccer to educate about HIV. Soccer has been such an important part of my life since 1976 when I joined my high schools first girls soccer team- thanks to Title 9. The Portland Timber's professional soccer team volunteered to run some of our drills and we were all hooked! I still play as a super sub on my all women's team in Portland, Oregon despite suffering a stroke nearly 5 years ago. It's a community that supports, mobiliizes and is a vehicle to spur on community support-I have lived it personally. Now, we can all work together to continue to use this amazing community to build an educational program to help stop the spead of HIV. Please join me.

The 3rd Grassroot Soccer NYC Marathon Team: 26 miles. 50 runners. $200k. 8,000 Lives.

We have the best marathon team out there- not only are they wicked fast and good looking- they're saving lives with every step!  And we are honored that they are running for Grassroot Soccer.

Grassroot Soccer (GRS) has reached over 400,000 youth with HIV prevention and life skills education, trained 2,500 Skillz coaches, and reached millions more through outreach.  However, there is much more work to be done; each day more than 7,000 people die of AIDS, with more than half of new infections occurring amongst young people.  

At Grassroot Soccer, we see a world mobilized through soccer to create an AIDS-free generation. Our mission is to educate, inspire and mobilize youth to stop the spread of HIV. By 2014, our goal is to reach 1 million youth with life-saving education. You can help us get there!

To achieve our mission, we continuously improve our innovative HIV prevention and life-skills curriculum, share our program and concept effectively, and utilize the popularity of soccer to increase our impact.  Each dollar is put to use in reaching the most at-risk youth in Africa with the best possible prevention education.

You can help by supporting Grassroot Soccer's AWESOME Marathon runners by clicking the DONATE button above. All donations are tax-dedutible.

Make an offline donation by sending a check to Grassroot Soccer PO Box 712 Norwich, VT 05055, please note the runner's name in the memo line.
