On March 24, 2012, Just Right Academy will field students, teachers, and parents in The Great Human Race in Durham. The GHR is sponsored by the Durham Volunteer Center and benefits many area nonprofits. It is a 5K run/walk and provides us, along with over 100 other agencies, the opportunity to raise money for our organization. Our board chair, Lois Batson, along with parent Tricia Budd, have stepped up to chair this endeavor. They attended a Durham Volunteer Center workshop, created our page, and have started recruiting walkers, runners, and donors.
They set an ambitious goal of $25,000. Raising this money would ensure that we can continue to provide tuition assistance to our students. Our goal is that at least a third of our students are middle and low income; we achieved that this year and as we grow, we hope to keep that percentage the same. These students and all our students receive individual reading tutoring if needed, speech and language therapy, intensive social skills coaching, academic remediation and challenge, ample physical activity, and a structured caring environment that helps them feel safe and valued.
We’d love to have you walk or run with us. We’d also love to see your name up there as a supporting donor. Please support Just Right Academy and the children who need our services so badly.
