I can't believe it myself, but I am excited to announce that I'll be running my third marathon in support of the Seeds of Peace US Program!
This time is a little different as I'll finally be running it in a city in which the US Program is based. That's right, I'm running the NYC Marathon!!! I'm headed there on November 4th to support the incredible work our Seeds, supporters, and staff.
The US Session works in Maine, Syracuse, New York City, LA, and Chicago to bridge teens across lines of difference. This program brings together a diverse cohort of high-potential changemakers for a transformative experience featuring identity-based dialogue as a central component. After camp, Seeds of Peace continues supporting these teens with year-round leadership and skills training. In 2019 we'll be bringing Seeds from NYC, LA, and Chicago for the fourth time!
The costs of bringing one participant to camp from one of our new cities is $3,000. As we've successfully done in the past, I'm hoping to sponsor at least one camper and I need your help! I encourage you to contribute what you can. No amount is too small! Your support is appreciated in advance! I hope to see you on the run.
