We are a Proud Sponsor to JA Team Achieve
JA Team Achieve is a chance for participants to support Junior Achievement of Wisconsin (JA) through fundraising while getting fit and training to run the Alaska Half Marathon on June 23, 2018! JA Team Achieve participants get weekly training from coaches and, after reaching their $4,000 fundraising commitment, they receive an expenses paid weekend to participate in the half marathon. JA Team Achieve is in its 5th year and is the only fundraising program of this kind that raises funds for Junior Achievement.
For many, it is their first half marathon and a chance to pair a life-long fitness goal with their passion for JA. Funds raised by JA Team Achieve team members allow over 6,000 JA students to receive the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their futures, and make smart academic and economic choices. By focusing on education, economic, and youth development, JA has been a positive influence in the state of Wisconsin since 1941. JA programs benefit more than 68,000 Metro Milwaukee and 168,000 Wisconsin students annually. No other organization is better positioned to impact youth with financial education which contribute to the vitality of our community and the availability of a well-educated workforce.
The support of Gatestone as ‘Presenting Sponsor’ empowers 600 young people to receive the skills they need to own their economic success through Junior Achievement programming. The support is truly transformational! Gatestone will be highlighted at all team events throughout the 2018 season as well as in Anchorage, Alaska in June 2018.
