BENEFITING: The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp
EVENT: Team HITW NYC Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2014
I have worked in the human service field for over 15 years. Helping children and adults with disabilies has always been my passion. This camp provides so much for those who are limited in thier access to summer camps. I had some major life changes and running became my drug, my therapy. Since quitting smoking 4 years ago, I have completed 3 marathons and started a running group, Tri-State Running in my area. I was lucky enough to be picked through the lottery to run in the NYC marathon. However, I really wanted to be part of a team and joining HITW seemed the perfect fit! The camp is located not too far from where I live. I still work with intellectually diabled children and will continue to advocate for every child to have fun. Your donations are greatly appreciated by families. To see the children having fun and enjoying the summer like very other kid, is the most rewarding feeling ever. Thank you!
