My name is Luis Reséndiz and I am a first grade Dual Language teacher at Ridgetop Elementary. I am raising funds to purchase resources that will support the educational needs of our students. 

I ask for your monetary support as I run 50 miles around my apartment complex in less than 8 hours.

50 miles for their smiles is a project that promotes the culture and values of Ridgetop Elementary School, a Dual Language school in Austin.

This campaign will be launched on April 30th (Mexico's Children´s Day) and will finish during Field Day on May 15th, when I will attempt to run 50 miles in less than 8 hours around my apartment complex.

The goal is to collect funds for these wonderful kids to support their educational needs. 

Students will be different next year, and we will need lots of resources to aid their self regulation and whole child learning. I am asking for your support during these critical times to help the most valuable assets of this planet: the kids! 

All of your contribution will go directly to the classrooms. The goal is to equip students with biliteracy resources, flexible seating, classroom supplies and class activities that support the varied facets of their learning needs. 
Sponsors like you make an impact in the lives of children in need and their
communities. Help us give them a brighter future together.

Luis is an inspiration to people everywhere, and I am very happy he will pass his “mamba mentality” to those kids!

50 miles is a long, long way to run. 50 circles is harder still. This donation is in honor of every dedicated teacher everywhere, especially Mrs. Gilbert, Mrs. Watkins, Mrs. Wood, Mrs. Gravley, Mr. Cheney and Mrs. Banowsky, my own primary teachers in grades 1-6 (no kindergarten for me).
