"That’s the Thing about Running: Your Greatest Runs are rarely measured by racing success. They are moments in time when running allows you to see how wonderful your life is” – Kara Goucher
My name is Christine Flach and I am running my 4th TCS NYC Marathon on November 6, 2016 to build better communities within New York City through the New York Junior League. I have been training for months and cannot wait to run 26.2 miles on November 6th.
I am so inspired by the impact of the New York Junior League (“NYJL”) that embodies a positive force for change within the NYC communities it serves.
The NYJL targets its community outreach efforts on the elderly and children throughout NYC. Our programs promote educational modules such as educating runaway teens and prison inmates on life skills and personal empowerment, providing seniors guidance on dietary planning and living active lives, counseling programs for domestic abuse and rape victims, and creating safe places for children to play through the NYJL’s signature Playground Improvement Project.
Donation proceeds support the NYJL’s collaborative community programs in the NYC metropolitan area, including Ronald McDonald House, Covenant House, Jewish Home Lifecare, Domestic & Other Violence Emergencies, and numerous others.
Each and every donation we receive is crucial to carrying our community initiatives. Through the generosity of donors, the NYJL’s Annual Fund provides essential support for the NYJL and enhances our ability to provide quality community services projects and trained volunteers who serve the needs of the NYC community.
I am asking your help to reach my goal of raising $1,000. No donation is too small. All donations to the NYJL are tax deductible.
I run to make New York City a better place for families in need... So… please support this AMAZING CAUSE! And it's tax deductible!
