Run to School Program

My friend Karen Carlson, School Nurse and advocate, is running 1000 miles for her students at Chelsea School in Hyattsville, MD. Chelsea School offers college prep and life skills for learning disabled and disadvantaged youth in DC. Karen has started a partnership with Chelsea School and a local fitness club to offer fitness classes for the students. Students pay a fee to participate but many don't have the resources to pay. Since starting Run to School Karen has started an afternoon fitness challenge and 3-3 basketball group. All thanks to donations.

Donate money for scholarships, work out clothes, water bottles, snacks, and equipment. Pledge for every mile Karen runs, donate $50 to cover 1/3 of the cost per student, $150 for a full scholarship. Donate smaller amounts to cover laundry costs or snacks.
