Hello all! Who signs up to run 26.2 miles with absolutely no running experience??? Me :) I recently signed up to run the NYC marathon as a personal challenge and as a way to support the pursuit of academic excellence for all kids!
Growing up in Harlem, I commuted an hour away from home in order to attend an adequate school/aftercare in a different community. All children have a right to access excellent education regardless of their residential district. I now live in harlem and work at "America's top public charter school network" to provide children in Harlem with an excellent education in their own community!
To run, I need to raise $3,000 through the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon! I cannot do it alone. I encourage you to visit my fundraising page and support generously :) My goal is to have each friend or family member donate $25 or more, but no donation is too small! Hope you can join me along my journey!
Please feel free to pass this along to your friends and family who may be interested in donating to our schools. Also, check to see if your company has a matching gift program, as it's an easy way to increase your donation.
