I'm so excited to take part in an incredible all female powerlifting competition called the Iron Maidens Raw Open on September 7 at Crossfit South Brooklyn! As if this wasn't cool enough, this event is also a fundraiser for the Stay Strong Scholarship.
The Stay Strong Scholarship is operated by Grace Outreach, a South Bronx based non-profit that works with women to further their financial goals and gain financial independence. The money we raise pays for 70% of college tuition for undocumented students, Dreamers, and women who have been victims of predatory for-profit colleges. Students in these financial situations have no access to financial aid dollars and the undocumented students are ineligible for most scholarships.
The scholarship has raised over $90,000 and put 15 women into college, and we need to keep raising money to keep our students enrolled! I'm fundraising this year through Crowdrise to keep the Stay Strong Scholarship going! Now, more than ever, we need to continue supporting women improving their futures through education. I'm asking you for a donation of any amount to help keep our current students in college through the Stay Strong scholarship. Thank you!
