Hello Friends! & Family!!
It's that time of year again -- TRI TIME!! :) #swim #bike #run
I am asking for your help and donations to raise money to support One Million Degrees (OMD), the only Illinois nonprofit providing comprehensive support to community college students — helping students graduate at twice the Chicago average and go on to succeed in work and life.
65% of Illinois public college students attend community college, but only one in four of them will graduate with a degree within three years. OMD changes that.
One Million Degrees is the only organization in Illinois and one of few in the country dedicated to providing comprehensive supports to low-income, highly motivated community college students to help them succeed in school, in work, and in life. From tutors and coaches to financial assistance and professional development, OMD offers the support that empowers scholars to transform their lives and those around them for generations. OMD Scholars graduate at twice the state average with the skills and experiences necessary to launch economically mobile careers.
This is my second year doing the TRI and I am beyond stoked that I have the opportunity again to be part of this great team and organization.
Any amount is appreciated and I can't thank you enough for the support!
