My name is Connor Mailander, I’m a rising senior at Carolina Day School in Asheville, NC. I’m a passionate runner and have been thinking of a way that I could make a difference in my community. I couldn’t think of a better way to impact our local at-risk youth than to partner with OpenDoors of Asheville. They have really invested in the family's lives and make sure that every step of the way, they have somebody who is there for them. Education truly is the real Ultra-Marathon.
I’ve decided that I will run a 100-mile ultra-marathon, through the North Carolina Mountains, and I need your help! I had originally planned to race this fall, but due to COVID-19, the families that OpenDoors of Asheville support are facing even greater need during these times.
I’m asking you to join us in achieving our goal by donating towards my race so that we can get families the support they need! Each gift will directly impact the work OpenDoors is providing. Thank you for helping under-resourced students get "To & Through" college.
