RUN LEO RUN...to support the Newton Public Schools!

When Leo Westebbe was a sophomore at Newton South High School, he was struggling in his classes, lacking self-confidence and feeling bad about his future prospects. But his participation in the Dreamfar High School Marathon program, along with the help and support of staff and programs at Newton South High School, helped put him on track for success.

Now the Clark University freshman wants to give back to the community that helped him. On April 16, he’ll run the Boston Marathon for the Newton Schools Foundation with a goal of raising $6,000 to support the NSF’s effort to raise $5 million over three years. These funds will provide the tools, technology and teacher training to foster innovative teaching and learning across all of Newton’s public schools.

“I’m happy to be running for the Newton schools,” said Westebbe. “For a kid like me who really struggled emotionally and academically, not every school system would have been so supportive. Newton schools really don’t give up on people.”

Join Leo for a FREE Run Clinic for Newton youth, Saturday, March 31st, 1 -3pm at Newton North High School's new track & field! Register at www.newtonschoolsfoundation.org
