Jasmine Lellock's Boston Marathon Run, the sequel

I'm thrilled to be running the Boston Marathon (again!) for the Newton School's Foundation!

Newton Schools Foundation advances excellence and equity in our schools by funding promising initiatives, professional development, and programs that close gaps in achievement and opportunity. My own students and fellow teachers have benefitted directly from the grants offered by NSF.  My colleagues and I learned from summer professional development on anti-racism, and my Shakespeare students had the chance to  meet a famous actor and playwright. Several of my students received funding from NSF to travel with me to Argentina as part of a learn abroad program. I'm grateful to Newton Schools Foundation for their efforts!

After finally qualifying for the marathon--a lifelong goal--and fundraising for NSF, I lost the opportunity to run the in-person race last year because it was cancelled for the first time ever due to the pandemic. I was able to run the virtual race in 2020 with my running partner, and now this fall, I will be able to finally run the in-person race for the first time. I hope you will help me reach my goal of $5000 to support a cause near and dear to my heart.
