BENEFITING: Central Park Conservancy, Inc.
ORGANIZER: Central Park Conservancy, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2016
This March I'll be running the NYC Half Marathon, and while doing so, I'll be fundraising for the Central Park Conservancy. Central Park is a huge part of my life. I run there almost every day, hang out there on the weekends, have thrown birthday parties in the park, volunteer monthly, and am a member of the CPC young philanthropist organization, Greensward Circle.
To have such a wonderful getaway, in the middle of such a busy city, is truly remarkable. Not too long ago, the park didn't look anything like it does now. Check out this link to see what the park looked like before the Conservancy was born: http://gothamist.com/2015/01/06/central_park_1980s_photos.php#photo-1
Through the money my team donates, we aim to ensure that the safety and beauty of the park remains for a long time. All funds go towards park maintenance, restoration, enhancement and public programs,
Help us run the Park all year long!
