THE STORY:

Hey everyone!  I'm delighted to be running the NYC marathon in support of Bronxworks and I hope you'll join me in contributing to the vital work they do on behalf of kids in low-income areas of the Bronx.


Although I live in Chicago now, I was born and raised a New Yorker, and my ties to the Bronx run deep.  As a high school cross-country runner I practiced and competed for years on the "back hills" of the legendary Van Cortlandt Park.  My parents moved to City Island almost 20 years ago, so I've been lucky to visit the "Sea Port of the Bronx" often to enjoy the famous seafood restaurants and the beautiful shores at Orchard Beach.  I love to go for long runs in and around Pelham Bay Park, which most people are surprised to learn is actually the largest park in New York City!  


When it came time to sign up for my first New York City marathon I had a true sense of coming home.  I was immediately drawn to BronxWorks because of the chance to give back to the borough that I've spent so much time in, and to help those in need in the community.  Below you'll find a summary of what BronxWorks does, and how every dollar I raise will go to a program that supports local low-income children and youth.  I'll be keeping these kids in mind as I rack up the miles - and dollars, with your help - and I'll be posting here occasionally to update you.  If you want to follow along with my training, I'll be blogging about running and prepping for the NYC marathon at www.emilyontherun.com.


THANK YOU for considering a donation of any amount.  Together we can really make a difference in the lives of kids who need it.  See you at the finish line!


- Emily

For the 9th year in a row, BronxWorks is thrilled to be a charity partner of the TCS New York City Marathon on Sunday November 5, 2017. Our team is making a big difference for Bronx children and youth and will be part of the excitement in one of the world’s most famous marathons!

Last year BronxWorks’ 5 runners raised at least $2,500 each to support our programs for low-income Bronx children and youth, including:
 
♦ After-school programs and summer day camps for low-income families, benefiting both kids and working parents.
♦ Programs to help teens successfully negotiate the challenges of adolescence and the transition to high school.
♦ Academic tutoring and college prep to give Bronx youth access to the benefits of higher education for a brighter future.

Please contact Evan Hahn at 646-393-4011 or ehahn@bronxworks.org with any questions or concerns.
