THE STORY:

I am running this year's BK half Marathon on behalf of Student Sponsor Partners which is non-profit that provides educational scholarships for inner city children throughout NYC. My partner, Henry Flores, is a former graduate of the program and has mentored 4 different students since graduating college in 2001. 


Henry was  recently awarded the Richard Parson's Community Impact Award by his company, Time Warner.  With this award comes a $5,000 donation to SSP from Time Warner and we are trying to match this award by raising another $5,000. Every dollar you donate will go towards transforming the lives of these children by providing them with an education that will last a lifetime.


About SSP: In 1986, Peter Flanigan, investment banker and former political advisor, founded Student Sponsor Partners (SSP) to address the high school dropout crisis in New York City. He wanted to provide students from low-income backgrounds with the opportunity to receive a quality education attending privately funded high schools. Students were paired with sponsors and mentors who offered financial support and one-to-one mentoring. SSP launched with 45 students, supported by 45 financial sponsors and mentors, starting the 9th grade at Cardinal Hayes High School and Cathedral High School. Today, over 1000 SSP students are supported by a sponsor and a mentor and attend 23 partner high schools located in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens.
