We want to give back to children who may not have what we had growing up and feel that in helping the MCLF, we are running for a good cause.
Camden, DE (PRWEB) March 24, 2012
Fuertes6 are 6 family members running the Caesar Rodney Half Marathon and rising money for a local charity, the Mike Clark Legacy Foundation (MCLF). The six members of the Fuertes family participating in the race are Jenilee, Alyssa, Shannen, Jelyssa, Norma and Manuel.
The Mike Clark Legacy Foundation provides academic mentoring and promotes self worth in youth through a union of education, health, and athletics, enabling them to see better alternatives and make positive life choice. According to Jenilee Fuertes, “We want to give back to children who may not have what we had growing up and feel that in helping the MCLF, we are running for a good cause.”
The MCLF is one of six charities sponsored by the Caesar Rodney Half Marathon according to Joel Schiller, race director. Fuertes further states, “We felt a connection to the MCLF because we are all athletes or were athletes in college and despite the economic burden everyone feels these days, we all have prospered professionally and want to give back.” Dave Ford, the chairman of the MCLF states, “we are extremely fortunate to have the support of the Fuertes family and look forward to cheering them on during their run.”
