Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! I'm thrilled to be running this year's marathon on behalf of Jumpstart, and hope you'll consider supporting me.
If you're not too familiar with Jumpstart, here's a bit more about it and why I am running on its behalf (from Glamour November, 2013):
My marathon incentive came from knowing this: In low-income neighborhoods, kids start kindergarten 60 percent behind their peers from affluent communities. Jumpstart is changing that. To date, the foundation has recruited more than 28,000 volunteers to equip pre-K’ers with the literacy skills they’ll need. “A child’s ZIP Code should never determine her chances at success in life,” says president Naila Bolus. Love that.
Thanks again for visiting. Now I actually have to run!
