Hello Family, Friends, Colleagues, and Strangers!
I am a local of Brewster, Nauset (2005) and New York University Alumni (2009), and a lifetime athlete participating in the TCS NYC Marathon Sunday November 5th, 2017. The team I am running with is Free Arts NYC, a charitable organization based in NYC with whom I have a longstanding relationship.
My involvement with Free Arts NYC began in 2006 as a member of the NYU undergraduate community service club, Stern Cares, and later on as President of this club I chaired events for Free Arts and developed a strong personal bond with this grassroots organization. In 2013 I ran my first NYC Half Marathon for Team Free Arts NYC and raised over $1,600 for their noble cause. In short, "Free Arts NYC provides under-served children and families 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." Free Arts NYC guarantees that: "100% of funds raised through Team Free Arts events benefit Free Arts NYC's arts mentoring programs, helping low-income children build self-confidence, communication & problem solving skills, and the creativity to make them successful in life." I am so happy to be doing something I truly love for a charity I truly believe in!
My individual goal for fundraising is $3,000 by October and I need your help!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT - I KNOW WE CAN DO THIS TOGETHER!
