BENEFITING: The Fortune Society
ORGANIZER: The Fortune Society
EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012
I am excited to tell you that on November 4th I will be running in the ING New York City Marathon, the largest one-day live sporting event in the world, with two million spectators and a worldwide television audience of 315 million. I’m elated to be part of this event!
Equally special for me, I am part of a team, The Fortune Society Flyers. We are running to raise funds to strengthen Fortune’s vital programs --- counseling, health services, substance abuse and mental health treatment, education, housing assistance and career development--- which enable previously incarcerated men and women to re-enter society and help those facing jail time who follow a rigorous, court-mandated program to modify their sentences.
Fortune’s intensive services not only help men and women change their lives and become contributors to their communities, they have lowered re-arrest rates, thus saving millions of taxpayer dollars and improving public safety. In 2011 Philanthropedia ranked the Fortune Society #i in local criminal justice.
I am urging you to support my Marathon adventure and make a donation in my name to The Fortune Society.
