BENEFITING: The Fresh Air Fund
ORGANIZER: The Fresh Air Fund
EVENT DATE: Mar 15, 2015
On March 15, 2015 I will be running the NYC Half-Marathon to support the Fresh Air Fund (and celebrate my 40th birthday). The Fresh Air Fund provides free summer experiences for children in NYC who are in need. Last year the Fresh Air Fund paid for over 7,000 kids to attend summer camp or visit a host family in the country. These kids had the opportunity to run barefoot in the grass, learn how to swim, or hike in the woods.
I chose the Fresh Air Fund in honor of my grandfather who grew up in New York City and never had the chance to learn how to swim or ride a bike. I hope that by running the NYC Half Marathon and supporting the Fresh Air Fund I can make a difference in someone's life. Please join me in supporting this great cause. And if you're in NYC on March 15, 2015 come and cheer me on.
