BENEFITING: Success Academy Charter Schools
ORGANIZER: Success Academy Charter Schools
EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2015
I'm excited (and scared) to be running the 2015 NYC Marathon on behalf of Success Academy Charter Schools and all of our 11,000 scholars!
Success Academy is redefining what’s possible in public education. Our dual mission is to build exceptional, world-class public schools that prove that all children from all backgrounds can succeed in college and life; and serve as a catalyst and national model for education reform and help change public policies that prevent so many children from having access to opportunity.
The vast majority of our scholars live in high-poverty neighborhoods, yet our scholars score in the top 1% in math and top 3% in English among all NY state schools. Success Academy has not only closed the achievement gap, we have reversed it.
I hope you will support our work and the children we serve by contributing to my marathon fund!
