B.R.A.G.G. (Bikers and Runners Against Gangs and Guns) is a new local program that may be perfect for you. The mission of B.R.A.G.G. is to affect the lives of underprivileged youth by means of positive mentoring. This is to be achieved through physical activity and the building of self-esteem through involvement in the community and achievement of goals. B.R.A.G.G. needs your help. Think of this as being a big brother/sister with a focus on the sport that you are passionate about.
As a mentor the weekly commitment will be on Wednesday evenings from 6-8pm from March to September. There will likely be some weekend runs/races for the kids to be involved in as well, this will be more clear as the season moves on. We will meet at different local off-road trails where the kids will bike and run. It does not matter if you are particularly fast or skilled, just be a positive influence on the kids. Consistency will be huge part of this program. If you cannot make it at least 80% this may not be the program for you. Thanks to local sponsors and donors the children will receive a bike, helmets, running shoes, and healthy meals.
Please consider helping out with this program and making a huge difference in the life of a child. If you are interested or have any further questions please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
