Hello All, As the marathon …
Hello All,

As the marathon approaches, I wanted to take some time to thank you again. Because of your support, 300 kids at P.S. 73 will receive a full years fitness and nutrition classes (a program called Fan4Kids which I helped out with last week and has generated incredible feedback from parents and teachers). Trust me when I say that your donations are truly helping improve these kids lives.

However, this note comes as slightly bittersweet as, due to a running related injury, I will be deferring my run to next year's race. It was a tough decision, made easier by the fact that your charitable donations are still affording this year's program in the South Bronx.

All in all, we raised a ton of money for a great cause and I have another year to train, improve my own health further, and run the ING NYC Marathon in 2014 for Change for Kids (without having to ask you for money again!).

I thank you again deeply for all of your support,
Alex Porter

Stuff About Me:

An ACL tear in March had dimmed my hopes of running this year’s NYC Marathon (my first). However, after hard work and a ton of motivation from the marathon tragedy in my home city of Boston, I have committed myself to running for my amazing charity, Change for Kids (CFK).

 

CFK funds music, sports, and art programs at select NYC public schools when state funding falls short. The money raised for this run will fund one year of PE and nutrition classes for 300 underprivileged 1st and 2nd graders at PS: 73 (South Bronx).

 

Having worked with CFK for the past year, I wish to meet and exceed a $5,000 fundraising goal. Together we can give these kids vital programs we take for granted.

 

I sincerely appreciate your philanthropic consideration and thank you for your support!
