BENEFITING: Harlem RBI
ORGANIZER: Harlem RBI
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2011
I have been a runner for many years. Sometimes I would tell myself that I should just run a marathon already! As you can see, my time has finally come. I am very fortunate to be running in the New York City marathon on behalf on Harlem RBI.
I have joined team Harlem RBI to raise money for their extraordinary program that gets our youth motivated. Each young person should be afforded the opportunity to play, learn, and grow. Through their after-school and summer programs, our youth are shown how to develop academically, socially, and emotionally through team activities.
Harlem RBI teaches youth essential core values such as respect, team work, integrity, diversity, and fun. This is what Harlem RBI is all about; our youth are our future. Through the power of teams, Harlem RBI teaches, inspires, and coaches the youth to recognize their full potential and realize that they can attain their dreams.
Harlem RBI's youth become confident, competent, caring, and active citizens in their community. Through learning the game of baseball, not only do they become physically healthy, they also learn the importance of being lifelong teammates, friends, and family to one another.
