Message from Jeremiah Cioffi
I will be a junior at Boston University this coming fall. I am a part of the Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) and am on track to commission as a Second Lieutenant in the spring of 2012. Through ROTC I had the chance to travel to Morocco this summer in order to participate in an internship at the Moroccan Royal Military Academy.
It was my first experience with poverty first hand outside of the United States. Children living on the streets and in unsanitary slums as well as not having access to quality education is unacceptable anywhere in the world. I will be running in three races this year in the Boston area in order to raise awareness of this issue. My goal is to raise $1,000 by my last race in April. Please donate what you can. Even $10 could save someone's life or allow a family to stay together.
