Purpose of Fundraiser: I am training to run the NYC marathon in order to raise money on behalf of New York Asian's Women Center, a social justice organization dedicated to helping women better their life's circumstances when facing domestic abuse. While initially founded to specialize in services for Asian women, the Center has always helped all women and their families regardless of race and ethnicity find the resources and empowerment in overcoming physical and mental abuse. The Center does not only offer shelter to women and their families but also offers services such as counciling, community outreach and education, and the resources to move forward.
From the Organization: The New York Asian Women’s Center helps women and their children overcome domestic violence and other forms of abuse by empowering them to govern their own lives. The Center provides a safe haven through multi-lingual support programs and shelter services. In addition, the Center works to raise public awareness about violence against women, advocates for the rights of survivors, and acts as an agent of social change. Here is some more information on the center itself http://www.nyawc.org/.
Our goal is to raise $50,000 as a team in order for the center to continue providing its much needed services to the community. I have pledged to raise $2,500 on behalf of NYAWC in order to continue their work and I need your help to do so.
I want to thank you for taking the time to consider helping myself and the New York Asian Women's Center out. Additionally I want to thank Xue and the rest of the NYAWC team for allowing me this opportunity to work with them.
