Thanks for supporting COCI in making a difference.
This is my 15th year participating in athletic events raising money for Cherish Our Children Inc. (COCI)!
I have had some health challenges and racing for a COCI has me keep going. The COCI kids are the ones who benefit from the $$$ raised through participating in these athletic events.
COCI has done so well operating our No More Victims Program - making a LIFE ALTERING difference with High School Kids who have one or both parents in prison. We learned that kids at a younger age are affected greatly as well and we are now launching - GEMS - Generating Empowerment for Middle School Kids!!
You and I have no idea what they deal with on a day to day basis. Our Program will aleviate that stress and empower them to be confident and lead wonderfully productie contributory lives.
Middle school should be a time of discovery and growth. But for the 43,000 middle school-aged children of incarcerated parents in the Houston area, this is when they are most at-risk of falling behind in school, first experiencing depression and giving in to gangs and other negative peer pressures.
Our Goal to kick the Program off is $50,000 during the month of October.
I am coming to you asking you to dig deep in your pockets and donate - so that we can start asap to make a difference in the life of these kids.
Thank you, as always, for your generosity and your listening!
