THE STORY:


When educating the minds of our youth, we must not forget to educate their hearts” - Dalai Lama

Hi everyone, my name is Nikki Yatsenick and I will be running with the Free Arts NYC Team, which has once again been named an Official Charity Partner of the 2017 TCS NYC Marathon, set for November 5, 2017. This will be my second year running the TCS NYC Marathon. Free Arts NYC is an amazing organization that’s mission is to provide underserved children with a unique combination of educational arts and mentoring programs that help them to foster the self-confidence and resiliency needed to realize their fullest potential! Research has shown that low-income youth involved in the arts are more likely to attend college, obtain employment, and give back to their communities!

To know me personally is to know that I am a true arts enthusiast in every sense of the word. I have always considered myself to have been very fortunate, in that I had early exposure to the arts and the encouragement to pursue them since elementary school. This early exposure and encouragement eventually led to my study of Art History, Film, and Theater & Performance on both the graduate and post-graduate levels.

Thus, the arts have been a critical part of my life, my work, and play. As my own life has been so impacted, broadened, and completely freed by exposure to the arts, I cannot think of a better charity to have become involved with and have the privilege to start fundraising for! Please help me bring underserved children the same opportunity that I am so sincerely grateful to have had, as I believe the arts have the power and ability to entirely shape and change the direction of one’s life for the better!
