Any child growing up in 80s/90s Brooklyn in a single-parent or hard-working household knows the value of CAMBA (Church Ave Merchant Block Association).
A nonprofit agency, CAMBA was the cornerstone of my Flatbush neighborhood flushed with immigrants, particularly of Hispanic, Asian and Caribbean origin at the time. I am running this race to raise awareness for CAMBA and the value it adds to the community it serves.
Join me in supporting CAMBA in these challenging times when their expertise and resources are most needed.
Here's a little more: CAMBA: "has helped New Yorkers build and sustain vibrant neighborhoods with services that lay the groundwork for economic stability, educational fulfilment, strong families and a healthy life. CAMBA’s 20/20 Vision lays out tangible solutions that support diverse communities where New Yorkers – regardless of their zip codes – have the resources and supports they need to reach their full potential."
