BENEFITING: Streetwise Partners, Inc.
ORGANIZER: Streetwise Partners, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
On November 6th I'll be running in the New York City Marathon (!) on behalf of Streetwise Partners (!!). The Career Ventures program at Streetwise provides intensive professional development training to help underserved individuals realize their career potential. The two young women I've had the pleasure of mentoring not only embody everything Streetwise stands for, but are an inspiration. They have proven to me that with dedication and hard work, no goal is out of reach.
I wouldn't consider myself a 'runner' by any means, and a marathon wasn't something I'd ever imagined doing. However, seeing a once-nervous trainee transform into a confident, successful professional by the end of the program, made the decision to run and fundraise for Streetwise one of the easier decisions I've ever made.
Barbara and Agatha, I'm running for you!
Thanks to everyone for your support - see you at the finish line.
