BENEFITING: New York Cares
ORGANIZER: New York Cares
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I'm thrilled to say that I'll be particpating in the TCS 2016 NYC Marathon! Help me meet my goal of raising $3,000 for New York Cares!
From Oct. 2014- June 2016, I worked at New York Cares. It was an incredibly rewarding experience on so many levels. Above all, I loved nothing more than being part of a culutre whose mission is to meet pressing community needs through volunteer service.
As most of you know, I've been involved with sports since a young age and love nothing more than rising to the next challenge. The NYC Marathon is a huge challenge both physically and mentally, but it's nothing compared to the challenges that the five boroughs of NYC face. Over the next couple of months, my goal is to raise $3,000 for New York Cares. Together, we can help support over 400,000 New Yorkers in need. Please take a look below for additional information on New York Cares' mission, as well as the amazing impact your donation will make.
Thanks for the support! See you at the finish line.
Please help support New York Cares and it's mission to address issues related to education, hunger, homelessness, and environmental revitalization throughout the city. You can make a donation in support of a particular runner or make a general donation in support of the entire New York Cares team. Every dollar New York Cares receives gets magnified by the power of six, thanks to the time and effort donated by our 62,000 volunteers. See how your donation can make a lasting impact on New York:
- $2,500 allows 92 adults to benefit from job training
- $1,000 enables 65 low-income families to claim their tax refunds and credits
- $500 helps us to collect and distribute 166 warm winter coats to at-risk New Yorkers
- $100 gives three public high school students help with math and science
