Steve and Jud Run the Original Athens Marathon!
A team for PRIDE INDUSTRIES
"Steve and Jud Run the Original Athens Marathon!" a team to help PRIDE Industries create jobs for people with disabilities.
Steve Boutin and Jud Riggs are members of the PRIDE Industries Foundation advisory board. They've decided to give their blood, sweat and tears to further PRIDE's mission as they train for and compete in the Athens Marathon. They'll be running the original marathon course, covering the same ground that the Athenian messenger Phiedippides ran when he brought news of victory from the battlefield of Marathon to Athens.
They're using this momentous undertaking as an opportunity to tell everyone they know about the great work PRIDE Industries does to create jobs for people with disabilities, and give YOU a chance to partner with them in supporting this mission.
PRIDE currently employs more than 2,800 people with disabilities across the United States, and helps hundreds more people find jobs with other employers. PRIDE provides diverse jobs at every level of the career spectrum, and a wide range of supports to help people with disabilities succeed in employment. These include job coaching, assistive/adaptive technologies, vocational training, and transportation.
Importantly, 100% of all charitable donations to PRIDE go to direct program services.
So make a gift/pledge to support Steve and Jud - your support may be just the motivation they need to avoid the same fate as Phiedippides! :)
