Texas House Member of District 51 has issued a challenge! Representative Eddie Rodriguez has donated $1000 to provide the gear, race entries, and transportation Marathon High teens need to achieve their goals. He is challenging you to make him donate additional $1000 to match dollar-for-dollar any donations starting today for Marathon High. That means that for every dollar you or one of your friends donates will be matched dollar for dollar by Eddie Rodriguez.
His support for Marathon High does not end at financial aid. He has also begun to prepare to run the Austin Half Marathon alongside our local teens to provide pacing and inspiration. His multifaceted backing has allowed the dreams of Ruth and the Rogue Athletic Club to become a reality.
I challenge you to meet his $1000 in the next 20 days and help us raise $3000 through this challenge. By December 17th (two months before the marathon) I want Mr. Rodriguez to know that the running community supports Marathon High and that we believe that these kids can rise to finish their first major race.
