On May 19th, I will hit the streets of Brooklyn to run the Brooklyn Half Marathon, which ends in my beloved Coney Island.
As has been my annual tradition, I am asking for your donation towards the Coney Island YMCA in support of my run. The Coney Island YMCA is a special place run by some very special people. In the 4+ years they’ve been in the neighborhood, they have served countless families, teens, seniors, and others. I was invited to join their board a few years back and I’m proud to support the organization.
Each dollar raised will go towards covering the costs of programming for all community members, regardless of their financial means. The financial assistance the Branch offers is reliant on the fundraising efforts of the board and staff. It would mean a lot to me to have your support again this year as I run the Brooklyn Half to raise money for this great cause.
