BENEFITING: SPARROWS NEST OF THE HUDSON VALLEY INC
ORGANIZER: SPARROWS NEST OF THE HUDSON VALLEY INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 07, 2015
Dear Family and Friends,
In February 2014, my very dear friend lost the battle in her fight against breast cancer. Subsequent to her passing, I struggled wondering how I can contribute my small part on this planet to honor her memory. Somehow, planting a tree or having a Mass said in her name didn’t seem enough, especially since the very essence of her spirit was her pure generosity and selflessness.
In the months that followed, several women in my life have had to encounter cancer in various forms and stages. Through darkness, some clarity emerged. I decided I knew what I wanted to do to not only honor my friend, but everyone I know currently fighting. I became aware of a local charity that was started here in the Hudson Valley called Sparrow’s Nest, and founded by Krista Jones. The mission of Sparrow’s Nest is cooking and delivering meals to families of moms, dads, or caregivers with cancer in many areas of the Hudson Valley. They provide 2 homemade trays of food to the recipients each week, all done through the love of volunteers.
In November 2014, several people decided to run in the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon to promote awareness and raise funds to expand the mission of Sparrows Nest. This year, I will be among 164 runners representing Sparrow’s Nest. I will be participating in this year’s Half Marathon on November 7, 2015. I have never run a half marathon , but I am determined to finish this race and to pay tribute to all the women in my life who have the enduring strength to fight cancer.
I kindly ask that you consider supporting me and my goal to run by making a tax deductible donation. Your donation will allow a family to have a healthy meal while Mom or Dad focuses on getting better. It will allow a Mom or Dad to get some extra rest . Most importantly, your donation will allow the mission of Sparrow’s Nest to expand to more areas in New York area.
Please support our team and make a tax deductible donation today on this secure website. Donations can also be mailed to:
Sparrow’s Nest Charity, 942 Route 376, Suite 217, Wappingers Falls, NY 12590
Note: please write my name "Christina Noschese" on the memo line of your check
