I'm running the New York Marathon to raise money for Play Rugby USA.
This is a wonderful charity that was founded in New York City in 2003 to deliver a transformational sports education experience to urban youth through rugby. Starting with a weekend program serving 75 children from a homeless shelter in Brooklyn, we now work with 4,500 children per week nationwide, many in under-served communities.
We're on a mission of creating a better world through rugby, using flag and tackle programs to teach positive life and team skills. Our programs have an impact - increasing academic perfromance, tackling obesity and engaging positively within the school environment.
However all this takes funding and that's why I need your support. This is my first marathon and I believe in this cause enough to dedicate my tired old body to months of training. So all I ask is for a small donation to help me raise the valuable funds to help these deserving kids.
