By contributing to TEAM ICL in the 2013 ING NYC Marathon, you will help ICL change the lives of thousands of New Yorkers who face profound challenges—veterans struggling with psychological and physical impairments, adults with life-long developmental disabilities, and people of all ages with mental illness.
People come to ICL with a desire to reclaim their lives. Every year, we help over 10,000 New Yorkers of all ages and walks of life overcome disabilities to live stable, fulfilled and productive lives. Just as the Marathon inspires its runners to stretch their abilities, ICL’s work is rooted in the belief that people can accomplish more than they ever imagined. Help us strengthen New York City and reclaim the lives of New Yorkers who, with our help, have the potential for so much more.
As many of you may or may not know, I [[ who two years ago wouldn't run to the corner for a fire!!]] have been given the fantastic opportunity by my company to run in the NYC marathon on 11/3/13!!! I'm really excited about being selected for 1 of the 5 charity slots that my company, Institute for Community Living (ICL) has to participate in the marathon. With this slot, comes the responsibility to raise at least $2,500 for ICL to help support many of the innovative programs that we offer people throughout the City of New York to become more independent, more than a diagnosis or a label, and pursue their passion in life. Very similarly to my own ideals, I feel that these people and this company are a great cause to run for!
Every dollar counts!! Please pass on to others in your network. I'd greatly appreciate it!!
Running in a marathon is something that is on my bucket list and I am very excited about this opportunity. I hope that you will be able to share this great task with me!!
Thank you in advance for your support [[in all forms!!]
