BENEFITING: CHILDREN'S AID
ORGANIZER: CHILDREN'S AID
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I found out pretty early that I neither have the talent nor the physique to become a successful athlete in the various sports I ventured. From soccer (striker to goalkeeper) to tennis (predominately ball boy) to field hockey (from goalkeeper to striker) my main asset appeared sprinting faster than my team mates, off the pitch of course. Left with no choices, for years I devoted all my time to business and ran occasionally a few miles on the weekends. I raced my first half marathon in 2015 (New Jersey, 1.39) and from that moment I was hooked! Living and working in New York City now for 2.5 years, it is time to beef up my game and finish the NYC marathon. My very first (definitely not my last)!
Intertrust Group and The Intertrust Foundation: Supporting The Children Aid Society
New York City is for many not an easy place, and with a little effort of everyone within the community, we can really have a positive impact. The Children's Aid Society has been around for so many years and is consistently doing groundbreaking work. We praise everything they do, and it is a real honor for us to partner with them, and contribute by launching a successful fundraising effort for friends, family, business partners and clients. We look forward to the 26.2 miles of fun! We also greatly appreciate the financial (and mental) support from our company Intertrust Group and The Intertrust Foundation (charity established to make a positive difference in the space of youth and education).
