Hi to my amazing friends and family,
As a few of you know, I have decided to run NYC Marathon again this year. After last years unbelievable experience, I wanted to do it again, but this year, for something bigger than my own goals.
On my last trip to NYC, I met Mariana at the Orchard Street run club. We immediatley connected over running, food, and goals. Mariana was up to some big things, with enough ambition and follow through to change the world. I am inspired by her and her dedication to make a difference.
Mariana is the Events Manager for team Free Arts and after hearing all about the amazing program, I knew I wanted to be a part of it!
The Free Arts NYC program gives underpriveleged and at risk children the opportunity to express themselves in healthy and creative ways. Quite often Arts is overlooked as a neccesary development tool for all kids, Free Arts NYC is changing that. All children are teamed up with a mentor so their art and life skills are developed and nutured in a safe and friendly enviroment.
I will be running this years 2016 NYC marathon for Free Arts NYC.
"Free Arts NYC's goal is providing underserved children and families with programs that help them to foster the self-confidence and resiliency needed to realize their fullest potential. 100% of funds raised through Team Free Arts benefit Free Arts NYC’s arts and mentoring programs." - Mariana Salem
