In 2010, I started my journey towards giving back to the communities I belong to. I've ran the NYC Marathon supporting inner city kids; rode my bike from San Francisco to Los Angeles and from Boston to New York supporting AIDS research. This year I am embarking in a new cause/activity, The NYC Tri supporting Ronald McDonald House.
The Ronald McDonald House New York provides temporary housing for pediatric cancer patients and their families, and is the largest facility of its type in the world. The House accommodates 84 families, and is filled to capacity nearly every night. It is located in close proximity to 13 major cancer treatment centers. They have provided support to over 35,000 families, from over 70 countries. It is a “home-away-from-home” that coordinates emotional and physical services, psychological care, ministry support, wellness programs, tutors, music, art, transportation, activities for siblings, holiday and birthday parties, and camaraderie for parents of children who have been diagnosed with cancer. The House accepts and relies upon 350 volunteers, as well as canine volunteers, in addition to its full-time staff
The New York City Triathlon will take place on Sunday July 19th. The race is comprised of a 1.5km (0.9m) swim (IN THE HUDSON RIVER!), 40km (24.9m) bike and a 10km (6.2m) run.
Please help support the Ronald McDonald House and watch me swim in the Hudson river!
