BENEFITING: The Fortune Society
ORGANIZER: The Fortune Society
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I'm excited and proud to be running in my first NYC Marathon for the Fortune Flyers on November 6th. A year or two, I never would have believed I was capable of finishing a marathon or leading a successful life.
I became involved with the criminal justice system when I was in my early 20s. I accepted responsibility for my for mistakes and vowed to change the trajectory of my life.
The Fortune Society provided resources and support to me that has enabled me to make changes in my life and I'm committed to giving back and supporting to their mission to support formerly incarcerated people's successful reentry from prison and promote alternatives to incarceration.
Please donate and help the Fortune Society strengthen their vital programs, including education, health, housing, substance abuse treatment, and employment services for previously incarcerated individuals just like me.
