Join Caroline and Toure and become a part of TEAM YES ............
Toure and I have been charged with the task of putting a team together for the JCC BeneFIT.
Many of you are aware that the JCC is hosting it's first EVER beneFIT...on Sunday, May 18. This event is two fold - it is geared to raise money for the JCC while honoring the Health & Wellness Center's Name sake, Marti Ann Meyerson & her Family, as well as encouraging people to get FIT in the process.
We need YOU to donate and/or participate in a fitness event on Sunday, May 18th.
We need as many of us as possible who can donate to our team to make a donation of whatever size. A minimum donatation of $36 (which is a magical number in Hebrew...18 means life and 36 = double Chai...double life!) is suggested.
WHY is this important?
Not everyone who comes to the JCC can afford it - so the JCC provides scholarships for services to better serve our community.
We sponsor free programs for people living with Cancer, Parkinson's disease and meditation to help keep them fit, calm and healthy
Although the JCC is 10+ years old - we are still paying for our building.
We want to be able to continue to provide and expand our ability to provide meaningful experiences for everyBODY.
If everyone of us donates whatever we CAN...we could knock it out of the ballpark.
Our team could ALSO win a $100 gift certificate...which we will use to celebrate together (food/drink...party!)
After you donate, sign up and join to either swim, bike, or walk.
Simply notify Caroline (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let her know which of the event(s) you want to do - one, two or all three - and she will get you registered.
Spread the word.......Please TELL your friends and family.
Every donation will help.
EVERY participant will beneFIT.
Thanks everyone. Hoping that we can really make a showing!
Love to all of you.............
Caroline and Toure
The JCC in Manhattan is locally and nationally recognized as a cornerstone of progressive, innovative programs for people at all ages and stages of life.

Make our community stronger by supporting the array of programs, scholarship opportunities, and free services the JCC provides every day. Be a part of this exciting event knowing that you are making a tangible impact through your support.
