I'm excited to be running the New York Marathon on Nov 4, 2018. It will be my first marathon and I am running on behalf of a philanthropy, one of New York Road Runner’s Youth Programs, called Team for Kids. Team for Kids is a team of adult runners who raise funds for critical services provided by New York Road Runners youth programs. These programs empower youth development and encourage healthy habits via running and character-building programs across the country. As many of you know, I love kids and fitness so I look forward to more opportunities to marry the two interests through philanthropic endeavors in the future.
I'm committed to raising $2,620 ($100 a mile) by September 15, 2018 (less than a month from now) and currently have $1,059 to go! I'm seeking your support. Making a donation is easy! You can click on the Donate button on this page to give through my secure fundraising site. All contributions are tax-deductible. Should you choose not to donate, your well wishes for a healthy training season are appreciated too! 😀
Your giving helps New York Road Runners youth programs serve 267,000 students nationwide - including 134,000 in New York City's five boroughs - through free NYRR youth running programs, events, and resources. Whether you are a runner, have worked with children, or have kids yourself, I hope you will join me to further this great cause! See you at the finish line!
