I am running the NYC marathon this year for an organization whose work I deeply believe in.
Masa works with with Mexican and Latino children, youth, and families in the South Bronx. They offer a wide range of services, including education and early literacy programs, after school programming and parent education and support groups.
I came across Masa a few years ago and volunteered in their afterschool program. I saw first hand the dedication from their staff and the incredible cohort of volunteers that are committed to helping children succeed.
Even with our sitting president waging an open war on immigrants, they are going to keep coming to the US in search of a better life. Every bit of help these families can get towards setting in and forging a life for themselves here is crucial, and I think Masa is putting their efforts where it matters most: directly with the families.
I hope you can help me raise some funds for them to continue their great work!
