On February 17th, I will be running the Austin Marathon and fundraising for the Boys & Girls Club of Austin. This will be my third marathon and my first one in nearly five years.
When I learned that Austin is one of the most economically segregated cities in the country, I wanted to do my part in helping underprivileged students across the city have the same opportunity as many of their peers who come from higher socioeconomic backgrounds. After researching different organizations, I came across the Boys & Girls Club and its chapter in Austin.
The organization is a leading youth development agency that provides resources to ensure that students graduate on time, instills the values of civic engagement and healthy lifestyles, and promotes leadership, social, and interpersonal skills.
More information about the Boys & Girls Club can be found here:
Any donation amount would be incredibly meaningful and I am more than happy to speak in more detail if you have any questions. Thanks so much!
