Thank you for visiting my crowdrise page, I am excited to be running the NYC Marathon for the third time this November! This time around I wanted to make my miles count for more which is why I chose to run with Team NYJL.
I have been a member of the New York Junior League for 8 years, volunteering in many different areas of the community, and making amazing friendships along the way. It is an organization that means so much to me personally and I am proud to support the many charitable activities we do.
For those of you not familiar, the New York Junior League (NYJL) is an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.
We have more than 2,800 volunteers - of all races, religions, and ethnicities - who donate more than 250,000 hours of service in the NYC community every year. We train volunteers to develop skills for community work, to serve on boards, and to be leaders.
Thank you for your support and I hope to see you out on the streets of NYC come November 6th!
