BENEFITING: Central Park Conservancy, Inc.
ORGANIZER: Central Park Conservancy, Inc.
Last year, I ran the New York City Marathon for my first time, training throughout the summer in order to be able to complete the 26.2 miles.
Running the marathon was one of the most refreshing events I've ever been part of, and so I'm doing it again. More than that, I'm raising money for the Central Park Conservancy again, after raising money for them last year. While there are many worthy organizations out there to give money to, Central Park Conservancy stands out because it serves as custodian to public space that is integral to the functioning of New York City. The park stretches from the Plaza Hotel to Harlem; it connects east Manhattan to west; it holds spaces for running, swimming, fishing, sitting, picnicking, softball, soccer, horseback riding, sledding, tennis, etc. And anyone can use it.
Please help me support Central Park Conservancy this year, and support what marathons represent: a faith in oneself and in others.
