EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I am pleased to announce that I will be running in the NYC Marathon on Sunday, November 6th, 2016 to raise much needed funds for Children of Bellevue, (CoB) Inc., (www.childrenofbellevue.org). CoB is a non profit 501 ( c ) ( 3), founded in 1949, to initiate, develop and fund special programs and to act as an advocate for children and their families within Bellevue Hospital Center (BHC).
My goal is to raise $3,500. With your help, I will reach and surpass that goal. Each dollar raised will help strengthen CoB’s ability to help children overcome the trauma and pain of illness; help abused or neglected children cope, recover and heal; advance language and social development in children at risk of delay; and nurture children and teens hospitalized for psychiatric reasons.
(Runner to write a short paragraph of how they became involved with CoB and what running for CoB means to them; why it is important to them)
All of CoB’s life changing programs are made possible solely through philanthropic donations from people like you who care about the vulnerable and underserved children in our communities. Thank you for supporting this very important work. Without you, none of this would be possible!
Thank you for your support!
