My 20 for 20 Challenge

in honor of Diane

I will be walking 20 times in 20 days in honor of Diane Roth’s memory & legacy:

Diane volunteered countless hours with Children Rising (Faith Network) coordinating quarterly Teacher Appreciation events that put wind in the sails of hard-working teachers and school staff. She volunteered regularly with the Health4Kids program bagging food for children and families in need. And her eye for design and beauty transformed many Children Rising Galas into elegant and dazzling affairs.

Since 2001, Children Rising has partnered with under-resourced community schools in the East Bay, coming alongside thousands of struggling children and youth. Last year, 400 children were given the gift of foundational learning, improved self-confidence, and the sense of hope that always follows. But there are so many more loving and intelligent children who deserve the same chance to learn and have a much better opportunity to realize their potential as they grow.

Children Rising has the audacious goal of empowering 2,000 students each year by 2022! My hope is to raise $5,000 to help make that goal a reality.

Thank you for your support!
