BENEFITING: Streetwise Partners, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Oct 13, 2013
Our team at PwC is committed to giving back to the community in any way we can. Every year, we actively participate in community services that range from helping the victims of hurricane Sandy, teaching classes on financial skills, to buying Christmas gifts for children from low-income families, and assisting unemployed individuals get back into the workforce.
This year, on October 13, a group of us will run the Staten Island Half Marathon to raise funds in support of StreetWise Partners. StreetWise Partners is an organization that assists disadvantaged, low-income individuals in realizing their career potential. It offers unique career mentoring programs that include resume writing, information technology, and communication courses, after which the participants have a much better chance of getting back into the workforce and becoming successful in their job.
Please help us support this important initiative and make our communities a better place!

“Exerting yourself to the fullest within your individual limits: that's the essence of running, and a metaphor for life — and for me, for writing as whole. I believe many runners would agree.”
