BENEFITING: LEGAL SERVICES FOR NEW YORK CITY
ORGANIZER: LEGAL SERVICES FOR NEW YORK CITY
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I had no intention of running a marathon. Ever. But when LSNYC offered me the opportunity to run on its behalf, I couldn't pass up the chance. As a member of LSNYC's Pro Bono Associate Advisory Board, I have seen how LSNYC is able to improve the lives of low-income New Yorkers. I couldn't pass up the chance to help.
For almost 50 years, LSNYC has improved the lives and communities of low-income New Yorkers. As the country’s largest provider of free civil legal services, it solves both heart-wrenching individual problems—eviction, domestic violence, loss of income—and addresses their underlying causes through litigation and advocacy. Last year, LSNYC advocates helped more than 80,000 New Yorkers living in poverty secure the essentials of life: shelter, safety, subsistence income, and access to health care and education.
As a supporter of LSNYC, you will be supporting the fight for vital legal services for thousands of New Yorkers living in poverty. LSNYC does amazing work, but the demand for their services outstrips their resources. By sponsoring me to run the New York Marathon, you will be helping to provide much-needed support to New Yorkers fighting for their rights.
