Believe it or not, I'm running the New York City Marathon! I've been training with my best friend Charlotte through the heat - it's not been pretty but it has been fun. Ever since I moved to New York (Brooklyn!), the New York City marathon has been something I've been thinking about, and this November, I’m committed to taking on the challenge. I could not be more excited about this opportunity.
As a champion of community development, I am running for a great cause and organization very close to my heart, the Bed Stuy Restoration Corporation (BSRC). BSRC is the nation's first community development corporation, founded by Robert F. Kennedy and Jacob Javits in 1967. My goal is to raise $3,000 for BSRC. Over the years, BSRC has created 2,200 affordable apartments, attracted more than $375 million in investments to Central Brooklyn, placed over 20,000 youth and adults in jobs, and provided arts education to 400 students, ages 3-19, each year.
Here’s where you come in... Will you please donate a dollar a mile, five dollars a mile or ten dollars a mile? I will be so grateful, as will hundreds of families who will be helped by this dynamic Brooklyn non-profit. As I look forward to crossing the finish line, having run 26.2 miles through the five boroughs of New York City, I hope I can count on your support!
If you’re in town, please come cheer me on! More details to come soon on that front.
