EVENT: 2015 Chicago Marathon
EVENT DATE: Oct 11, 2015
Thanks for coming. I am running the Chicago Marathon on October 11th in support of The Golden Apple Foundation and can use your support.
With your help, every mile that I log will help transform students’ lives. Golden Apple provides financial aid and support to educate and develop highly effective, dedicated teachers for at-risk students in schools of need throughout Illinois.
As a father of two, I’m excited to help give kids everywhere a brighter future through better education. Plus, running the marathon has been a personal goal and a challenge that I can’t wait to take on! My training and race will be tough (I’ll have run over 200 miles by the time I cross the finish line) but running for a good cause and having your support will help me achieve my goals!
My fundraising goal is to raise $1,500 by October 15th.
You can make your tax-deductible donation and check my progress here.
I'll be updating my progress along the way.
Thank you so much for your support!
Golden Apple Foundation for Excellence in Teaching wrote -
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.
Schools of need carry unique challenges in which to accomplish student learning and growth. 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.
Every student deserves a teacher who will say, "You can do something amazing. You matter."
