BENEFITING: The Grassroot Project
EVENT DATE: Oct 25, 2015
I like doing things in twos (Twinning!)... I've run the Marine Corps Historic Half (now) THREE TIMES! for The Grassroot Project. Keeping it going for the People's Marathon!
So, no, you're not seeing double. Or maybe you are because I am running twice for TGP in 2015. (Ryan promised me the full wouldn't be twice as hard as the half!)
<-- that first photo is me if you don't share this fundraiser or make a donation. So do it, do it for this AIDS baby. (and my knees!)
WHO WE ARE:
The mission of The Grassroot Project (TGP) 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 (Hoya Saxa!), 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.
WHAT YOU CAN DO:
Match my current donation of $25.
WISH ME LUCK :) My T-cells need it.
