Dear CMC Community,

When Ben Tillotson and Rita Gilles (both Class of ’15) decided to train for the L.A. Marathon on March 15, I was impressed.

When they expressed their intention to run in order to raise awareness and money for The Student Imperative, I was inspired

The Student Imperative grows our financial aid and scholarship resources to improve access and affordability and increase socio-economic diversity across the full spectrum of American families.

When Ben and Rita went out to recruit classmates to grow their effort, which now has more than 30 students signed up to run the race, I was moved.

Moved to run, to follow their example, to trail (I’m sure!) in their footsteps on March 15, and moved to hustle in the sprint towards the Imperative’s $100-million fundraising goal.

I hope that you will be inspired to make a gift to CMC in support of our students’ commitment to The Student Imperative. A gift in any amount says that you stand (and run) with our students in their effort to make the CMC education a reality for this and future generations of outstanding young leaders.

Come join us and cheer on our students on March 15!

Very truly yours,

Hiram E. Chodosh
