I'm running the 2016 NYC Half-Marathon to benefit the Central Park Conservancy!
I'm really excited, you guys.
See - I really love running. But I also love doing things that help other people, and can benefit the places that mean a lot to me, and that I want to preserve and share with the people that I care about.
So I'm running the NYC Half Marathon in 2016 for the Central Park Conservancy. I've set a goal to raise $1000.00 to benefit the Central Park Conservancy, and I'm going to train my rear-end so that I can run 13.1 miles to be worthy of this cause.
Central Park was designed so that residents of New York City would have outdoor space for leisure, health, recreation, and nutrition. During the Industrial Revolution, when the park was designed, this was a radical notion - - the notion that land in a modern city might be preserved for the use of the commons.
The Park remains, today, a resource for the people of New York City. It's one of my favorite places, and I hope you will sponsor me in running the NYC Half to support the Central Park Conservancy.
