EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
This year I will be taking on something I'm super excited about and a bit nervous too! I'll be running the NYC Marathon :) This will be my very first marathon and I'll be running for the incredbile charity, The Marcie Mazzola Foundation. As someone who grew up here and still lives and works in this community this cause is really special to me. Here's a little bit about it:
Their mission is “to help better the lives of abused and at-risk children; and to increase advocacy and community awareness about the needs of children.”
The Marcie Mazzola Foundation works tirelessly to improve the lives of abused and at-risk children. To this end, we invest in programs that serve these children directly, and in initiatives that build community awareness about their unique and urgent needs. By working on these two fronts, the Marcie Mazzola Foundation has been successful in helping hundreds of fragile children overcome their abuse, develop self confidence, and become empowered to lead positive lives.
The Foundation has achieved great success through the dedication of its board, family, friends, volunteers, and the generosity of supporters.The Marcie Mazzola Foundation fulfills its mission by hosting innovative fundraising events. Event proceeds are distributed to various organizations which are carefully screened to ensure that donated funds are maximized and used specifically to help children. We believe that if everyone does just a little bit to help someone in need, collectively we can make the world a better place.
