This bonus charity and mini campaign is brought to you by longtime supporter of the Giving Challenge who is participating in a half marathon this Sunday to raise money and awareness for Teach for America.
You can donate directly here.
The SHAPE half marathon brings together thousands of women of all ages and background for a day of fun fitness in Central Park. It is an inspiring event with an extensive history of unifying and empowering women.
On April 14, she will be running in honor of the women who are current TFA NY corps members and alumni. TFA corps members empower students everyday in the classroom and women teachers are of particular importance. In several recent studies, girls’ academic performances are positively influenced by having a female teacher. Women who taught in a classroom were more likely to encourage them and gave them an equal opportunity to express themselves. On April 14, she would like to recognize the women who are making a difference in education.
