DIFFERENT CITY, SAME GOAL! Chicago Marathon 2021
My brother Samuele and I team up for the third year in a row to raise funds for Pencils of Promise, a for-purpose organization that works across the globe, building schools, creating programs and supporting teachers around the goal of education for all. We run (I mean, Samuele runs, I am in charge for the cheering and the fundraising) in memory of my beloved student Tommaso Cerase. Tommaso (Tommy for everyone) was a brilliant, lovely, fun, talented, empathetic boy, and we want to honor his memory through sports, one of his greatest passions. Our ultimate goal, marathon after marathon, is to be able to dedicate a classroom to our Tommy, in one of the schools PoP is building in Ghana, Guatemala, Laos. With your help, we will be able to reach that goal, together.
