Fundraising is still open for the next two weeks!
Thanks for all those who donated...my official projected time was 4:20 this was about 20 min below my goal. The race was stopped about 5 min from finish line. I guess it's a blessing that I was running slow...I would have been right there. My thoughts and prayers to the victims and their loved ones. Thanks again for supporting me and Jumpstart for the 2013 Boston Marathon.
Jumpstart’s mission is to ensure that every child in America enters school prepared to succeed. Every year, Jumpstart recruits and trains thousands of college students and community volunteers, called Corps members, to work with preschool children in low-income neighborhoods. Throughout the school year, Corps members dedicate several hours each week with their partner children to implement Jumpstart’s proven curriculum and develop the language, literacy, and social skills these children need to succeed in school and in life.
This year, Jumpstart Boston’s Corps members will give 140,000 hours of service to change the educational lives of 1,000 children in nearly 50 preschools. Through their service, Corps members not only change these children’s lives, but their own lives as well.
One Corps member stated, “Last week my partner child wrote her full name out for the first time. In college, I have read books by philosophers, artists and political theorists. In three years, no words have been more powerful than those of my four year old friend. Thank you for the opportunity to work for something and with something I believe in.”
