EVENT: 2015 Chicago Marathon
EVENT DATE: Oct 11, 2015
Every student deserves a teacher who will say, "You can do something amazing. You matter."
Hi friends and family! Thank you for taking the time to support us and a great cause.
We're running our first ever marathon this October, and we need your help: we're running to benefit an incredible organization, the Golden Apple Foundation.
The GAF's mission is to inspire, develop and support teaching excellence in Illinois, especially in schools of need. The need is great- there are over 3600 schools of need in the state of Illinois. Currently, Golden Apple Scholars impact the lives of nearly 60,000 students in Illinois. We are on a mission to support 75,000 students by the Fall of 2018.
Golden Apple Scholars are prepared to be highly effective, dedicated teachers for at-risk students. The result is teachers who support and inspire students to thrive, regardless of adversity.
Thank you for helping Golden Apple provide positive, credible, and stable role models for students in Illinois!
