Returning to NYC for my first race ever, 350 miles logged during training so far, 40 miles left in training, just completed my 20 mile run this last Sunday, on my 4th pair of running shoes since July and then I get to have memories for a lifetime supporting such a great cause that gives underserved children of Greater NY memories of a lifetime as well...how fitting!!!
This year alone we've sent over 15,000 under served children in the Greater NY area to professional sports, concerts and cultural events that will have changed their lives forever...we've been serving the Greater NYC community for over 6 years and have collected and distributed over 40,000 tickets totaling over $1,300,000

Live entertainment provides a positive source of inspiration for children in a world where there are many negative alternatives. Most Valuable Kids of Greater New York, Inc. (MVK) brings this inspiration, at no cost, to underserved children in the New York Metropolitan Area. MVK does this by offering children's organizations access to cultural events, professional and collegiate sports and entertainment events through an online ticket donation and reward system. MVK overcomes the financial obstacles associated with attending live events by distributing unused tickets to children who would otherwise not be able to afford to attend. These tickets are distributed to boys and girls, 18 and under, through organizations that focus on children in low-income and underserved households.
