BENEFITING: METROPOLITAN COMMUNITY CHURCH OF NEW YORK

EVENT: NYC Half 2011

EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2011

Heather McConnell

THE STORY:

I've signed up to run the NYC half on March 20, 2011 - the day before my 30th birthday! To keep myself motivated, I've decided to use this run to support an awesome organization I've worked with for the past year.

Since 2002, MCCNY Homeless Youth Services: Sylvia’s Place has empowered thousands of LGBTQI runaway and homeless youth aged 16-24 to continue their work towards independence by providing comprehensive overnight, drop-in, crisis intervention, case management, mental health, healthcare, HIV testing and job training services in midtown Manhattan. A project of the Metropolitan Community Church of New York and MCCNY Charities, MCCNY Homeless Youth Services: Sylvia's Place is dedicated to building a sense of community in order to bring the world to just and right relationship. For more information, visit homelessyouthservices.org.

Two things: 1) I feel kind of bad that they have a minimum donation amount on here ($10). However, I can pretty much guarantee that donating will ensure that I buy you a drink sometime in the near future. 2) I know it says you're donating to the Metropolitan Community Church - I've spoken with the volunteer coordinator and all money raised here will go to the shelter as it doesn't yet have its own tax-exempt status code. Yay!
