BENEFITING: TUESDAYS CHILDREN
ORGANIZER: TUESDAYS CHILDREN
EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2015
For the sixth consecutive year, I will be fundraising on behalf of Tuesday’s Children and participating in the New York City Marathon! It is an emotional and heavy-hearted time of the year for my family, but thanks to TC and all of the wonderful people associated with the charity, I look forward to fundraising as much as I do running on marathon Sunday, which is my favorite day of the year. Thanks to the collective generosity of you donors, fundraising, as it turns out, is as rewarding (and definitely easier!) than running.
Tuesday’s Children is a charity that exists on modest means, yet has never strayed from its mission to advocate for and support families and individuals affected by the events of September 11th. In recent years, the organization has taken on ambitious projects, seeking to spread its message and proven method of long-term healing globally, through its Project Common Bond, as well as locally, through a partnership with the Resiliency Center of Newtown. I am unconditionally grateful for all that TC has done for me, and can only hope to repay a small fraction of the debt of gratitude that I owe it.
Cumulatively, my five previous fundraising campaigns have raised nearly $150,000. Last year alone, the donation haul totaled approximately $75,000, which was not an insignificant amount relative to TC’s size. Just as I wouldn’t be who I am today without TC, it is my friends, family and colleagues to whom I owe the most; thank you for viewing my page and I hope I see you all out on the sidelines of the marathon on November 1st!
