THE STORY:

FROM REBECCA:

As many of you know I was planning to run the 2012 New York City Marathon last Sunday. In the wake of Hurricane Sandy’s devastation the event was cancelled to allow for the city to fully focus all resources on relief efforts. The coastal communities of New York City – including Red Hook, Staten Island, the Rockaways, and Coney Island – were hit the hardest, and there are still hundreds of thousands without power, heat, proper shelter or food.

In a show of New York City’s compassion and resilience, organized and grassroots volunteer organizations have mobilized and sprung up throughout the boroughs. It is amazing to see, hear and read about New Yorkers coming together to help. However, as wonderful as the volunteer work is, the city also needs money to begin the long path towards rebuilding.

I am running the Anthem Richmond Marathon this Saturday, November 10th, to support the Brooklyn Community Foundation’s Brooklyn Recovery Fund, where 100% of donations to the fund support relief efforts in coastal Brooklyn. Please consider showing your support for New York with a donation.

I chose this charity to send support directly to the coastal communities that so dearly need it right now. If this specific charity isn't what you'd like your money going towards, I highly encourage you to find another charity and donate, there are many that can be found on the crowdrise website alone. Sandy’s effects have been felt far and wide across the East Coast.

BROOKLYN COMMUNITY FOUNDATION wrote -

In response to vast devastation to Brooklyn caused by Hurricane Sandy, particularly in coastal communities like Red Hook, Coney Island, Brighton Beach, Gerritsen Beach, Sea Gate, and Sheepshead Bay, the Brooklyn Community Foundation and the office of Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, in partnership with the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce, have established the Brooklyn Recovery Fund, a local charitable fund that will provide relief to Brooklyn communities and organizations impacted by Hurricane Sandy.


Brooklyn Community Foundation, Forest City Ratner Companies, the Brooklyn Nets, and Barclays Center have each pledged $100,000, for a total of $400,000 to create the Fund.


Brooklyn Community Foundation will administer the fund, which will respond to the immediate and long term impacts of this natural disaster and serve as a flexible source of grant funding to local nonprofit organizations as the rebuilding efforts in Brooklyn progress over the coming weeks and months.

Please click on the DONATE button and give whatever you can. And, go a step farther and click on the CREATE YOUR OWN FUNDRAISING PAGE to help us fundraise and raise the most money for our cause.

You met your goal : ) Great cause. Listen- best of luck in the marathon for next year, look at it this way, it's an another year you'll have to train to tear it up. You'll do great. Sometimes things don't work out how we planned, but then in the end we wouldn't have had it any other way. No big deal. Go get 'em Rebecca. Ps. Nice antlers :P 5 years ago
