Hello everyone!

I've signed up to participate in this year's 40 in 40 on 9/1/2020 in Pittsfield, MA to benefit the Literacy Volunteers of Berkshire County.  The LVOBC is a not-for-profit organization that provides tutoring to adults in basic reading and writing or conversational English.

For some background, I became a board member for LVOBC in 2019, as well as an ESOL tutor with the organization.  I currently have two very wonderful students who are committed to gaining the literacy skills they need to reach their goals.  I am a huge advocate of education, particularly for adult learners, so this organization is a natural fit for me to give back in a field I am so passionate about.  This year has been a challenge for the organization with lesson continuity between tutors and students, particularly with the temporary closure of the library where most of the sessions are held.  The tutors and students have had to adapt to several ways of remote teaching/learning, as well as the challenge of keeping the students motivated and engaged so that they are confident that their goals are still attainable throughout this pandemic.  The LVOBC has been instrumental in making this new normal successful as they are determined to not let this deter from their mission of continuing to serve the community.

So along with that, the LVOBC board is tasked with becoming creative with fundraising as the current plans of the annual library mini golf event has been put on hold indefinitely, which always has been their biggest fundraising event of the  year.  (The mini-golf event would transform the library itself into a mini golf course, and has been a very popular annual event)   We have come up with an alternative fun outdoor event to celebrate our 40 years as an organization, as well as replace the mini golf for our critical fundraising.  Beginning on September 1st, we are doing a run/walk/hike/bike event for 40 days, and I am reaching out to see if any of you would be interested in joining me in the challenge of the fundraising event as a participant or donating to our organization.

If you would like to make a donation please visit my fundraising page at: https://www.Pledgereg.com/267382

I hope you'll consider making a donation of any amount to help me reach my fundraising goal to support this great organization!
