Hi Everybody - I've just signed up to go Over the Edge for Wakeman Boys & Girls Club!
I have been a part of this club since it first opened in 2011. I am a former member, Youth of the Year, volunteer, and staff.
This club means so much to me because it was/still is my second home. Being a first generation college student, who's parents migrated to this country to give my siblings and I opportunities they couldn't afford, I was introduced to this club to help guide me through the right path to succeed. The work, volunteer, leadership, and awards that I obtained during my time there helped prepare me to attend college and obtain internships of my interest! The programs like Keystone Club, a leadership program, and D2D, a college readiness program are some of the amazing programs that I have been a part of. I want to make sure this club has the funds to continue to provide amazing opportunities for the future generation, so they can attend college and follow their dreams!!
On September 16, 2018, I will rappel 230 feet down the People's United Bank Building in Bridgeport, CT. The tallest building in Bridgeport. But I can't do it without your help!
I have committed to raise $1000 to support Wakeman's mission: to guide and inspire young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens.
Please help me reach my goal so that I can go Over the Edge for Wakeman!
THANK YOU SO MUCH,
