BENEFITING: Central Park Conservancy, Inc.
ORGANIZER: Central Park Conservancy, Inc.
On November 5th this year, I will be pounding the streets of New York running my first ever marathon for Team Central Park.
For nearly three years, I've been lucky enough to call the East Coast of the USA home. During that time, Central Park has played a starring role. Cycling round the park with friends, running all the way round the park (10.2k according to Jo's app!), watching films beneath a starry sky, going to concerts, taking a stroll through the park with my folks and bumping into Big Bird (!), snowy walks on wintry days. The Park has been the backdrop to so many fantastic memories
Behind the scenes making all those memories possible is a fantastic organization - Central Park Conservancy. The Conservancy is a private, not-for-profit organization formed in 1980 by a group of concerned citizens determined to restore, manage and enhance the park. Its aim is ensure Central Park's care for current and future generations.
I will be running to help raise funds to help support this great cause. This is my way of trying to help give something back to the City I love. I would be truly grateful for any donations big or small.
