On November 4, 2012, I will be running my FIRST Marathon, that is 26.2 MILES throughout our beautiful New York City. Wanna know what's better than that?? I have joined the INAUGURAL Marathon Team of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York. CAN WE SPELL EXCITEMENT???
Even BETTER, you can also join this team by supporting our goals. By supporting MY goal to raise $3000, you will be directly supporting the St. Nicholas Project, a program that provides critical social services to families in need throughout the year. St. Nicholas Project services include nutritious meals, job readiness training, housing assistance, immigration and refugee resettlement counseling. In keeping with the story of St. Nicholas, the project's work has a special focus during the Christmas holiday season, when client families receive winter items of necessity such as blankets, coats, hats and gloves.
Through a network of more than 90 programs, services and agencies, Catholic Charities provides help and creates hope for more than six million of our New York neighbors, non-Catholic and Catholic alike. Catholic Charities responds to nearly every human need, always with compassion and dignity.

I am running to transform the lives of families in need. When you help me on my journey, you will be helping our neighbors to live lives filled with dignity and hope.
My dear friends, we all count on your support. Let's make it happen!
