Running for L.I.F.E.

Ozzie, Filex and Stanley are running the 26.2 miles of the 2018 New York City Marathon to raise scholarship funds for the Lehman L.I.F.E. Alternative Break Program at Lehman College, CUNY. In which underserved students partner with grassroots leaders around the globe in service.

- No Amount is too small (or too big)
- Want a mile dedicated to the memory someone you love? Tell us!
- Does your company match? Let us know (It's a different link).

In 2015, Filex and Ozzie met in Kenya while volunteering with Lehman L.I.F.E. students in the Kibera slums of Nairobi. When Filex moved to New York, the two became fast friends and are now running buddies! Stanley is the Dean of Students at Lehman College and has been a great running support for Filex as well!

Help them raise funds to support more opportunities to send underrepresented students across the globe in service to develop relationships like this one!
