For the Healy Foundation’s (THF) 2020 fundraiser, we have a group competing in the Escape from Alcatraz triathlon (yes, we are actually swimming from Alcatraz to San Francisco, biking up and down the hills of SF, and then finishing with an equally hilly eight-mile run). The Healy Foundation raises money through fundraising events to support high-achieving college juniors and seniors of financial need who experience unexpected hardship, such as the death of a parent, health crises, and other financial burdens that threaten to derail their education and future. THF provides financial assistance as well as mentorship and career guidance that has enabled scholars to graduate and flourish at top firms such as PWC, rank in the top five percent of Temple University’s Law School class, and excel in MIT’s Chemical Engineering PhD program.

Our fundraising target for this event is $150,000. Donations of any amount are welcome and appreciated as every penny helps us support these deserving students (the board covers the administrative expenses of the foundation). The Healy Foundation is a registered 501(c)3 organization so your donations are eligible for tax deductions.
