THE STORY:

Dear Friends,

You may know that I have run my first  ING New York City Marathon as a member of the Team for Kids Charity on November 1, 2009.  That experience  transformed me and now running is an important part of my life.

Through the years  I have learned more about  Team For Kids and all the other projects on the NYRR foundation and all the good things they do.  I  have even met and run with some of the children in their  programs.  

Funds raised by Team for Kids members allow NYRR to provide free or low-cost school- and community-center based health and fitness programs to children who would otherwise have little to no access to regular physical activity. Currently, their  programs serve nearly 100,000 children each year in more than 400 schools and community centers in New York City, nationally, and in the Cape Town region of South Africa.

With obesity still on the rise, NYRR’s youth services equip children with the tools they need to become physically fit for life, while also incorporating goal-setting, character-building, and nutrition educat a. 

After the marathon I wanted to keep helping Team For Kids and that is why last year I joined  the NYRR Young Professional Committee (YPC), a group of volunteers dedicated to New York Road Runners’ mission to transform lives through running.

This year,  I will raise money for Team For Kids and the NYRR's programs again.

I haven't pledged for any amount  and the money you donate will  NOT cover any training or entrance to the marathon for me.  I already have guarantee entry to the ING NYC Marathon.

The only benefict I get  is a rewarding feeling of helping others. With just a small donation  you can also share this feeling with me.

 The funds you donate pay for:

  • Training for teachers, coaches, field managers, and coordinators, most of whom are volunteers
     
  • Incentives for children to encourage them to maintain attendance, demonstrate sportsmanship, and strive for and achieve fitness and personal-achievement milestones
     
  • Entry fees and transportation costs so participants in our programs can compete in races and attend running-related sporting events
     
  •  Resources to establish programs in areas of greatest need

Any amount we can raise together will help the kids and we will transform their life. Any amount count, even a dollar!!

Thanks in advance for helping  thousands of children.

Love,

Clau
