Evan Collyer via Crowdrise
February 17, 2012
I am running the NYC Half Marathon this year and when I received an email from the New York Road Runners about using Crowdrise to raise money for any charity I wanted, I immediately knew which one I would raise money for. The Karl M. Collyer Scholarship is named in honor of my father and financially aids local youths who want to learn to sail as part of the William E. Mee Youth Sailing Programing.
This will be my 3rd Half Marathon (the first being the New Bedford Half Marathon in March 2011 and the second being The Providence Rock n' Roll Half Marathon in August 2011) and I am looking to PR, which would be anytime below 2 hrs 10 mins 21 seconds, I know I can do this and am looking forward to it, but more importantly I want to raise some $$ for my father's scholarship fund and help local youths learn to sail.
