A team of 50 men and women are taking part in a 12 mile obstacle course called Tough Mudder. Why? To raise funds and awareness for Amaanah’s unique program called the Awesome Academy.
The Awesome Academy is a school-based academic and social support program for resettled refugee students. Amaanah’s instructors work along side teachers inside the classrooms to provide students with the extra support they need.
The program is currently serving over 600 students across 15 schools in Houston and Austin. Learn more about the program and the campaign here.
