Wednesday, May 10 - Karina's Story

Welcome to Day 10 of our Step Up Celebration!

First and foremost:

With your incredible support we were able to meet yesterday's $5000 donation match. 

We are now just $15,000 away from our $175,000 fundraising goal for the Step Up Celebration! And what better way to get you inspired than watching Karina’s story:

This past week you have heard many stories of our Steps students, and today, we hope to show how the circle closes. Meet Karina Da Rosa: former Steps student, now mentor, school nurse, and Steps to Success Board Member. We hope you will agree that her story makes it all come together.

Tomorrow, on our final day of Step Up, we are transporting you to a Virtual Paddle Raise. Get ready to help us with our final push to raise as much as we can for educational equity in Brookline.


And don’t forget: just one more day to join the Step Up Celebration Sports Auction. Click below for a chance to get tickets to Boston’s sports teams. The auction closes at 11:59PM tomorrow, May 11.

You can still buy tickets to our Heart of Brookline Raffle:

And if you missed our earlier videos, you will want to see Herbie’s Story, our look at Team Building as seen through our middle schoolers, and In Their Own Words, featuring Steps Alums!

A special thanks to WCVB-TV for generously donating a photographer and editor for Karina's Story.
