I am running in the NYC Marathon this November (2011) and though I am not the best at fundraising I sure do try... The charity I chose to support, Randall's Island Sports Foundation, Inc. (RISF), is a cause that is synergistic with many of the causes I stand for. I think it is extremely important to have well kept outdoor recreational space especially in an urban environment such as this (NYC). It is also crucial that our youth participate in sports and utilize the programs offered through Randall's Island Sports Foundation as an outlet.
RISF is a nonprofit organization that, in conjunction with City leadership, works to realize the island’s unique potential by developing sports and recreational facilities, restoring its vast natural environment, reclaiming and maintaining parkland, and sponsoring programs for the children of New York City
Since 1992, our Foundation has sponsored a range of free youth programs at Randall’s Island Park, which has given thousands of community children the opportunity to go outside and play in the great outdoor right in the middle of New York City. In coming years, and with your help, we hope to reach even more children.
RISF believes it is important to give children the opportunity to exercise and learn about healthy living. RISF sponsor a number of youth programs, which are all provided to children free of charge. RISF currently sponsors: the Jesse Owens Track & Field Program, the RISF Summer Camp, dance fitness classes, a tennis program and a golf program. The Jesse Owens Track & Field Program and RISF Summer Camp are after-school/summer programs. The dance fitness classes and tennis and golf programs are held during school hours and meant to be incorporated into children’s educational/physical fitness program by teachers and school staff.
With our efforts RISF will continue to work toward developing and maintaining Randall’s Island Park, and sponsoring community-linked programs for children so that all New Yorkers have the opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors without leaving the City.
