Join The Grassroot Project's athletes by signing up to support our work through our Marine Corps Marathon fundraiser. Our goal is to recruit 50 runners to help support our 2020-2021 academic year programming in DC schools.
The Grassroot Project is a group of NCAA athletes from 4 DC universities who are working together to improve adolescent health in our nation's capital. The organization recruits and trains athletes to be health educators in high-need middle schools.
Each semester, The Grassroot Project's athletes volunteer to lead health education workshops in middle schools across DC, teaching one of the organization's three curricula --- mental health promotion, sexual health promotion, or nutritional health promotion. In a city with limited resources to provide health information to teenagers, this organization is doing important work in our city.
