BENEFITING: The Grassroot Project
EVENT DATE: Oct 25, 2015
Hello my dear Family and Friends,
Thank you so much for checking out my profile!! This is my 1st time running the Marine Corp Marathon 10K and I am super excited to be running for the Grassroot Project (TGP). This organization is special to me not just because I serve on the Board of this awesome organization but because of the work they do in Washington D.C. for high-risk youth.
I have a goal of $500.00 to reach. By donating to this cause we are supporting the efforts of creating a healthy AIDS free generation while investing in the future leaders of tomorrow. Do not hesitate to learn more about the work of the Grassroot Project and understand that any amount you donate will be greatly appreciated. No amount is too small!!
What is our Mission:
The mission of The Grassroot Project is to use sports to educate at-risk youth in Washington D.C. about HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention. The Grassroot Project engages at-risk youth in Washington D.C. by partnering with athletes from Georgetown University, George Washington University, Howard University, Maryland University and other DC area universities. The student athletes address the prevention of HIV/AIDS through an interactive curriculum of over 15 games and activities that encourage participatory learning of basic HIV prevention information, stigma, and discrimination. By using the vehicle of sport to influence social change, the programs allow kids to share their feelings and beliefs, increase knowledge, and develop healthy attitudes and behaviors.
