Maggie's Marathon Fundraiser
Hi friends! I'm excited (and a bit nervous) to announce that I'll be running the 2022 Disney Marathon, and raising money for
Break A Difference's
From: Baltimore - Alternative Breaks Scholarship Fund!
Please join me in my efforts to make Alternative Breaks accessible to a wider range of young adults. I have a personal fundraising goal of $3,000, which will cover all costs for one individual to participate in BAD's "From: Baltimore" program*.

From: Baltimore is an 8-month civic engagement accelerator that builds an equity pipeline into the social impact sector. We accomplish this by utilizing immersive & educational volunteering to infuse life-changing empowerment & purpose into young people's lives. An essential part of this program will be to participate in an Alternative Break.
Alternative Breaks are fully immersive and highly organized service trips for students and young adults that allow them to make a direct impact in a community while learning more deeply about the issues surrounding that community and the larger world.
Break A Difference is a nonprofit organization with the goal of accelerating young leaders on a trajectory of lifelong service. We believe in the transformative power of volunteerism, both for the individual volunteer and the community in which they serve. Following participation in a Alternative Break, individuals are more likely and better equipped to become involved in community organizations, take on leadership roles, and continue to serve.
