So this crazy thing happened last week. Less than 3 months before the Boston Marathon I was told I would have the amazing opportunity to not only run, but to also raise money in direct support of Excel Academy Charter Schools! This cause means soooo much to me as I continue to see on a daily basis the postive, challenging and supportive community the students, families, and educators I work with have created at Excel. My students are INCREDIBLE and are breaking down barriers everyday. I hope this campaign will continue to support them in doing so!
More about Excel
Excel Academy Charter Schools is a network of tuition-free, public charter schools serving the Massachusetts communities of East Boston and Chelsea. It was founded to address the severe academic underperformance and low college matriculation rates of the student populations in these neighborhoods. Our founders envisioned a free, public school alternative where all students would be held to the highest academic and behavioral expectations, and college would become a reality.Any donations are truly appreciated and will directly assist our students, the majority of whom are children of first generation immigrants, are among the most underserved learners in the cities of Boston and Chelsea. More information on the Excel Academy Charter School network can be found here.
Thanks in advance for your support!
