Please join us on October 5th for our first annual run/walk through the beautiful Cove Island Park while we celebrate the life of Marcus McInerney and support Stamford's youth. Celebrations will include entertainment, food and raffle prizes. All participants will receive a free t-shirt. All proceeds will support SPEF and the expansion of its nationally recognized mentoring initiatives in the Stamford Public Schools.
The work of MarcUS for Change is inspired by the life and memory of Marcus Dixon McInerney. While Marcus’ life ended tragically and far too soon, his ability to turn his life around and to harness the support of so many is an example of the power and possibility for change. MarcUS for Change’s mission is to raise awareness and financial support for mentoring programs in Stamford that provide our youth with the resources needed to reach for success and build happy, full lives.
The Stamford Public Education Foundation's mission is to support the students and teachers in Stamford's Public Schools through community collaboration and philanthropy. SPEF’s mentoring initiatives aim to provide students who are in need of additional academic and/or social support with the resources and guidance necessary to be successful during middle school, high school, and in all college and career endeavors.
