I am passionate about running. I believe it makes me a better mother and wife. Over the past few years, running has given so much to me. Sanity. Health. Friendships. But, now, I have the opportunity to use my running to give something back. This November, I am running the NYC Marathon as part of Team Grassroot Soccer.
Each day more than 7,000 people die of AIDS, and it is the leading cause of death of women globally.
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, GRS plans to reach 1 million youth with life-saving education. To date, we've graduated 393,225 girls and boys from our programs globally.
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.
Just $25 will help Grassroot Soccer educate one young African with comprehensive HIV prevention knowledge and mobilize them to act as a change agent in their community.
I have pledged to raise $3,000 for Grassroot Soccer and I know with your support, I can reach my goal. Thank you!
