Message from Anna Maine:

I just wanted to thank all of you for your support during the LA Marathon! Your contributions help City Year bring teams of young people into 25 schools across Los Angeles to serve as tutors, mentors and roles models for students at risk of dropping out.
I was inspired to run last spring when I saw one of my 8th grade students finish his second marathon. This fall my roommate Jackie and I signed up to run with City Year, knowing that all the donations would go to support our students. We started training in October and all that hard work finally paid off! I finished with an unofficial time of 5 hours 22 minutes and some very sore muscles. It was all worth it when I saw that our City Year team raised over $10,000 for the students of LA!
