THE STORY:

Dear Friends and Family,

I would be grateful for your support as I train to compete in this year’s New York City Marathon.

I’m running on behalf of Grassroot Soccer, a U. S. non-profit organization dedicated to educating African youth about halting the spread of HIV.  As many of you know, I was recently in South Africa and witnessed first-hand how this organization is successfully reaching children through the medium of soccer. Grassroot Soccer has already provided 400,000 youth with HIV prevention skills and has set a goal of reaching one million by 2014.

I hope you’ll support my goal of raising $3,000 by making a contribution. All donations are tax-deductible and will go directly to Grassroot Soccer.

Thank you!!

-Matt

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 Matt Aldag's name in the memo line.
