BENEFITING: POWERPLAY NYC INC
ORGANIZER: POWERPLAY NYC INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
This Fall, I am running the New York City Marathon to support the PowerPlay NYC which strives to help young girls, often from underserved communities, gain the benefits of playing sports to build confidence, stay healthy, learn team skills and gain mentors and role models, all as part of a broader development program.
Often, girls are almost two years behind boys in motor skill development, in part because of their lack of opportunity to play sports. PowerPlay programming includes a focus on teaching girls fundamental skills across a variety of sports.
Through my years as a teacher, high school sports coach and parent of an athletic daughter, I have seen the great benefits of girls being involved in positive sports activities. Please help me help girls of New York City gain these opportunities.
