Drawing #3 Winner: Tara Hawkins, Urbana, ILSubmitted by Anonymous on Sep 27th 2013 - 8:00AM. | Perma Link
Congratulations, Tara Hawkins, winner of our third drawing for a free GO FAR curriculum! Tara is the After School Child Care Coordinator at Yankee Ridge Elementary in Urbana, IL. Her after school program has 75 kids from kindergarten to fifth grade (see some of them, above, running in a relay at a University of Illinois track meet, above).
"We are wanting to start a program to help some of our kids that aren’t the best at sports and give them something to work towards," says Hawkins, left. "Our main goal is to run the 5K at our Annual Marathon in April. We have several kids that are not as privileged as other kids and lots from single parent families who don’t get many opportunities."
