BENEFITING: CHANGE FOR KIDS INC
ORGANIZER: CHANGE FOR KIDS INC
My name is Joanna and I'm running the NYC Marathon in support of Change for Kids. I was drawn to CFK because it is a local organization giving directly back to the NYC community. They partner with visionary leaders at underfunded public elementary schools in the city to the provide programming, volunteers, and leadership support.
Your contribution will be utilized to provide art and music classes, literacy programs, and experiential learning for students, along with management support and strategy for school administration at CFK's partner schools.
Today, CFK serves nearly 4,000 kids at 10 partner schools. That's pretty awesome, but you can help them do more!
If you're interested, please take a look at the CFK website (changeforkids.org). If you want to do more than donate, there are a myriad of additional ways you can get involved (but we'll take the donation!).
About me: I've been running regularly as a hobby for a while now and completed the Philly Half in 2013. This will be my first marathon! Please join me in support of this extremely worthy cause and I promise you won't regret contributing to such a wonderful organization.
