BENEFITING: Fairmount Park Conservancy
EVENT DATE: May 07, 2017
I am participating in the Broad Street Run in Philadelphia this year as part of the Fairmount Park Conservancy team. Being on this team and helping to raise funds is very rewarding for me. The money raised from this event will go to park improvements mostly at Belmont Plateau. This is one of top competitive cross country trails on the east coast at the college level. I ran cross country at Belmont in high school and have most recently taken my dog for walks there. Belmont is used by a variety of people for many different events (picnics, baseball, biking, etc). The improvements that have happened there since high school are tremendous. Giving back to a place that has so much to offer to so many people leaves you with incredible emotion. With your help, further improvements are a possibility. Thank you!
