Dear friends and family,

Thank you all so much for helping me raise money for Success Academies over the past several months. I'm really appreciative of your support.

As you have probably heard, the New York City Marathon has been canceled this year due to the calamitous aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. While I'm sad not to run the race this year, calling off the race is ultimately the right move. There is so much work to be done in the city to help those who still lack water, food, and electricity.

Thankfully, the Success Academies themselves are in good shape, but many of their students are still coping with the effects of the storm. On behalf of these schools, I thank you for allowing them to provide extra support to students in this really difficult time.

If you live in New York, please consider signing up to volunteer in the city's most damaged neighborhoods: http://action.unitedwaynyc.org/page/s/sandy-volunteer-interest-form

Again, thank you all so much for your support.

Hello! I admit, I have been away for a few months working on a charity event that I have not yet gotten on Crowdrise. It was an international event called Shimmy Mob, where belly dancers from all over the world performed the same choreography, wearing the same simple outfits, on the same day (May 12th, World Belly Dance Day). The proceeds went to local shelters that help the domestically abused. I bhope next year to have this event showcased here on Crowdrise. Welcome to Crowdrise!! Here is a vote (100 points), to help you get rolling!!

Stuff About Me:

Charley's the name, running's the game.

The 2012 NYC marathon will be my fourth, and I'm absolutely thrilled to raise money for Success Academies! As a Teach for America alum (Delta '07), I have seen the incredible impact that well-run schools and skilled teachers can have on their students.

A good friend from college helped make the movie The Lottery, which profiles Success Academies and their amazing staff. I'm hoping that by raising TEN THOUSAND dollars, I can help Success Academies further their important mission.

(And if you haven't watched The Lottery, do it tonight. It's streaming on NetFlix.)

I hope that you'll help me support these amazing schools and come out to see the big race in November!
