BENEFITING: METROPOLITAN COLLEGE OF NEW YORK
EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012
My mother said the real test of learning is not what we know, but what we can accomplish with what we know. For me a great accomplishment is running the marathon – it takes time, training, effort, energy, and perseverance. But students at Metropolitan College of New York (MCNY) are achieving far greater accomplishments every day. They are applying their education to achieve in the real world while working full-time and supporting their families. They are overcoming life’s obstacles and improving their lives through relevant accomplishment-based education.
On November 4th, I will be running in the New York City Marathon to support them and I need your help.
My mother, Audrey Cohen, founded MCNY in 1964 as a way to help poor women get off welfare and better their lives. To this day, MCNY ties everything learned in the classroom to relevant real-world experiences and MCNY students graduate with the practical experience through projects in the workplace called Constructive Actions. As the Vice Chair of the Board of MCNY, a non-profit accredited college, I am passionate about helping deserving students improve their lives.
So this year, my 8th NYC Marathon, as I run through the Bronx, home of the new MCNY extension center, I will be thinking about all the students who are working so hard to achieve their dreams and make NYC better for all of us.
