Build A Better You Challenge: Morals

This year, Fight For Life is excited to announce the “Build A Better You Challenge” that incorporates our Building Dreams program with Jack and Jill Magazine! In this new series, Marlin Jackson sets out the building blocks that students need in order to live the life they want. As someone who grew up in humble circumstances and was able to overcome a broken home and drug-fueled neighborhood, Marlin knows all about what it takes to fight for a better life.

In the second issue, Marlin teaches readers about the importance of morals, sharing a personal story of growing up with a skewed moral compass because of the negative environment he lived in. Marlin shares, “the right people and places at the right time led me to developing a healthy relationship with my morality. It was a gradual process of change, but at the center of my process were strong relationships that provided new information for me to analyze, process, and grow from.”

We’re asking our readers 1. What do morals mean to you? and 2. How do you show morals at home, in school, or in your community?

Readers have a chance to win an NFL jersey of their choice and will automatically receive a signed photo from Marlin by reading the article, downloading the attached PDF and mailing the filled out essay questions to:
