Hello dear friends,
Please join me in raising $15,000 ( or more) to support an extraordinary organization : i-tri.
i-tri is a non profit organization on the East End of Long Island that helps teen girls develp self respect, feel empowered, live a healthy life, and love herself. It does that by offering a 6 month curriculum in physical fitness, nutirtion and self esteem .The program takes each girl though a journey of finding and believing in herself. The program year ends with each girl participating in a mini triathlon which is an amazing achievement for all. Some have never biked before; others do not know how to swim. We teach them how and and help them feel they are capable of anything!
As board co-chair and a board member for 9 years, I am so proud of this organization's achievements and growth. Starting 10 years ago with 10 girls in one small school in the Springs in East Hampton , we now have served over 600 girls and this year we will serve over 200 girls in 10 small and large schools. And we have ambitions to become a national organization soon !
We can't do all this without your help. The program for each girl (including bikes, swim suits, helmets, tranportation, classes and more ) costs $2500, all of which we underwrite. Will you join me in suppporting this wonderful program?My goal this year is to raise $15,000 from my team. Many of you have been so generous before. I hope you will be so again.
Please check us out at our new beautiful website itri.org! Bring a tissue!
With so many thanks, Linda
