THE STORY:

Grassroot Soccer NYC Marathon Team

  • 50 runners
  • $200k
  • 8,000 lives

As many of you know, I ran the NYC Marathon last fall, but because my decision to do so came late in the game, I wasn't able to run as part of the Grassroot Team.

This year, I'm stoked to say, I'll be training and running alongside 49 others who share my passion for the Grassroot Soccer mission & vision.

Soccer was and continues to be an important part of my life, and I can't think of a better, more effective medium through which to educate, inspire, and mobilize. 

Putting the sport of soccer behind an idea for an AIDS free generation is inspiring -- imagine a world put in motion through soccer to stop the spread of HIV.

Soccer is doubtless an integral part of local cultures across the world, the sport's true power being realized every day in the connections it creates between people.  Please join me in supporting those who, through GRS, use soccer as an access point into the communities of Africa, building instant friendships and engaging hard to reach youth by way of a soccer ball and an open field.

In addition to online gifts, which can be given via the orange DONATE button in the upper right of this page, you can also mail checks to the Organization directly (so long as you include my name in the memo line!): Grassroot Soccer, PO Box 712, Norwich, VT 05055.

 

I cannot imagine running this race without all of your support -- see you at the Finish Line in Central Park.

 

 

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.

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.
