BENEFITING: ALEXANDRA'S PLAYGROUND
EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
While we run 26 miles, help keep us motivated by donating to a very special and meaningful organization! Your donation will help put a smile on many children's faces for years to come from Haiti to NYC.
The mission of Alexandra's Playground is to provide as many children as possible with a place to learn, grow and play together. Play leads to the nurturing of the spirit and by extension, to the nurturing of young bodies. Active play leads to an active life, and that leads to healthier children. With an increase of childhood obesity and childhood diabetes, Alexandra’s Playground wants to promote healthy minds and bodies by using playgrounds as a catalyst for a long-term healthy lifestyle. To combat these growing issues and to also commemorate the life of a very special girl, Alexandra Vitale, Alexandra's Playground was formed.
