In 2017,Alberto and Miguel, two friends of the Latino Scholarship Fund went really out of their way to help our students! All the way to Alaska.
They knew that the Latino Scholarship Fund (LSF) of Western Massachusetts awards scholarships to students in the region who are selected on the basis of need, academic achievement, and community involvement. Too often recipients have had to confront genuine hardships and challenges as they pursued their dream of a college education and a better life. And yet they persist. In doing so they prove that “Sí, se puede¡” (Yes we can!)
The goal of their ride was to follow their dream of a lifetime: to ride 12,000 miles to Alaska and back by motorcycle! They invited their followers to help raise funds to award two $1,500 scholarships. Through their blog, they asked folks to support their dream and help them reach their goal by donating to the Latino Scholarship Fund of Western Massachusetts, either individually or by joining with friends and making a combined gift. Follow their adventure at Alventure Alaska!
Suggested donations were:
10$: Alberto Who?
20$: He Talked a Friend into This?
50$: Do They Know How Far Away Alaska Is?
100$: YES WE CAN!
A Custom Amount: Color Outside the Lines ?
Any donation is greatly appreciated,
Alberto y Miguel
