“It’s hard to beat a person who never gives up.”
– Babe Ruth

For some students, it’s TOUGH to be prepared for what lies ahead after graduating from high school. That’s where SPEF comes in. This year, we’ve mentored nearly 900 Stamford students, distributed more than 5,000 free books, provided over 16,000 hours of math tutoring to 100 high school students, and more. But, it’s TOUGH to do it alone…

Last year, 34 members of Team SPEF crawled under barbed wire, carried heavy tree limbs, climbed Everest and sloshed through the mud, finding camaraderie on the course. Each committed to raise at least $250 to support SPEF’s programs. (Thank You!).
