I will be running the LA marathon in support of City Year - Los Angeles on March 24, 2019.
Why City Year - Los Angeles?
I will be running the LA marathon in March to raise money for City Year Los Angeles. Every dollar you donate goes towards City Year's mission to correct educational inequity, increase graduation rates, and ensure that every student has the academic resources they need regardless of their neighborhood and the school they attend. A few months into my service, I've witnessed firsthand the positive impact City Year's in-class help and after-school program has on students' test scores and overall social environment.
Why a marathon?
I have always been passionate about long-distance running and ran the 5k and 10k as part of Kenyon College's track and field team. By completing this marathon, I will get to accomplish a lifelong atheltic goal at the same time that I can raise awareness for an organization that does so much tangible good in the community I have been training in.
What is my fundraising goal?
My fundraising goal is $650, all of which will go towards ensuring that City Year will have more financial resources to employ tutors, run more community outreach activities, provide more supplies for its after school students and extend its programs to more schools throughout LA.
How much should I donate?
Donations start at $5 and the smallest donation helps.
