BENEFITING: Jumpstart for Young Children, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012
Every child deserves the chance to succeed, yet poverty puts millions of children at greater risk of school failure because they lack access to a quality education. Jumpstart recruits and trains college students and community volunteers to deliver a high quality early education curriculum to preschool children in low-income neighborhoods. During their school year together, children develop skills they need to be ready to start school, setting them on a path for lifelong success.
Team Jumpstart is proud to support five runners who will be dedicating their marathon experience to Jumpstat's mission of working towards the day all children enter school prepared to succeed. This year alone, Jumpstart Tri-State will train 816 college students to serve over 2,000 preschool-age children in low-income neighborhoods.
Your support enables us to cultivate a life-long love for langauge and learning and ulimately provide a foundation for future success for thousands of preschool children.
