Run Houston! University of Houston 10K, 5K, 1K
 University of Houston Campus, Texas
September 25, 2016

On Sunday, September 25th I will be participating in the Run Houston 10K! This is my first time doing this event, and I’m so excited that I have a great organization supporting me in reaching my goal. I have chosen Generation One as my Reason2Race. Learn more about Generation One at: http://www.generationone.net/

For those of you who might not know, I have the privilege of working at Generation One as their Director of Communications and Mentor Program Coordinator. I LOVE getting to see the faces of our kids every day and hear their stories.

Have you ever heard of the 30-Million-word Gap? The 30-Million-Word Gap is research that shows that the average child in an upper or middle class home in America will hear about 30 million more words by the age of 5, then the average child in a lower class home. This puts impoverished children far behind academically and developmentally. This is why I am so passionate about Generation One’s early childhood program, after school program, and mentoring program! We have already seen so many of our kids improve their social and emotional learning, as well as academically.

Please contribute to our cause. Any amount would be great: $50, $100 or other. THANK

YOU for your contribution, and thank you for caring for the Generation One kids!
