BENEFITING: JUNIOR LEAGUE OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK INC
ORGANIZER: JUNIOR LEAGUE OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
After two "almosts" of running the NYC Marathon (Hurricane Sandy & a broken ankle), this is finally the year to make it happen! And I couldn't be more excited to be running on Team NYJL!
The New York Junior League has given me countless opportunities, let me meet and serve in my community, and brought me some of the best friends I've ever had. It’s safe to say that the NYJL helped me plant “roots” in New York City.
I won't be able to meet my fundraising goal without your help, and you will see your donation resonate all over New York from our playground improvement projects, to providing healthy resources for families in our community, to helping provide job skills training for women transitioning back into the work force (just to name a few!). I can’t say enough wonderful things about this organization, and being a third generation Junior Leaguer I am honored to run with Team NYJL!
I cheered at the NYJL station 6 years ago as a provisional, and I can't wait to run by it this year! If you feel inspired to donate, I would greatly appreciate it as well as all of our community partners that benefit from your donation!
