BENEFITING: GRASSROOT SOCCER
ORGANIZER: GRASSROOT SOCCER
EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2014
I’m proud to announce that I’ll be running the 2014 NYC Marathon on behalf of Grassroot Soccer (GRS), a non-profit organization that uses the power of soccer to educate, inspire, and mobilize communities to stop the spread of HIV.
Through their innovative approach, Grassroot Soccer is empowering youth with the knowledge, skills and support they need to break the cycle of AIDS and transform the course of their lives forever. This year will mark GRS’ 6th year with a charity team in the NYC Marathon, and to date, runners have raised $1.1 million to help in the fight against HIV/AIDS.
I have set the initial goal of raising over $5,000, and am asking friends, family and fans to consider donating to help me achieve this goal. Any little bit helps!
