THE STORY:

I have spent three months training for the New York Marathon, as part of the New Yorkers for Children team. I have run 400 miles in training, given up smoking, and lost 15 lbs. I will race on Sunday, and hope to complete 26 miles in around 4 gruelling hours.  

Please will you sponsor me for this? Every $20 or $50 will help.  

NYFC is my favourite charity: it provides a vital service to kids who need it, and who benefit greatly. I have a personal relationship with the charity, having mentored several of the kids over the last ten years, including Maurice, who has become a lifelong friend to me. Maurice is now studying at NYU's Shanghai campus, and working as an investment banking intern for my company, BDA Partners. 

There are over 11,000 children in foster care in New York City.  They face unique and complex challenges in their efforts to become successful, self-sufficient adults. New Yorkers For Children (NYFC) aims to provide youth with the support, guidance, and opportunities that every child deserves.

NYFC's 2014 Highlights

$50,017 was distributed to 35 young people by The Charles Evans Emergency Educational Fund to help youth, formerly in care, who encounter unforeseen financial emergencies.

326 laptops were provided to youth in foster care as part of the 760 Back to School Packages sent in 2014.

75 Back-to-School Packages were sent to youth who have aged out of the foster care system, a new addition to the program.

75 teenagers in foster care volunteered at the 2014 Wrap to Rap program, which provided over 1,000 gifts to children in foster care during the holiday season

The Youth CAN! program doubled in size in 2014, and now has had 30 participants to date. 70% of participants moved into internships as a result of the program.

The 2014 Spirit Award recipient, Jermaine, was provided with a $10,000 scholarship to pursue his educational goals, in addition to the two runners-up, who received scholarships of $2,500 each.
