BENEFITING: The JCC in Manhattan

EVENT: beneFIT Your Community: JCC Fitness Fundraiser

EVENT DATE: May 18, 2014

Melissa Donovan

THE STORY:

The Donovan Family is taking on our first physically active fundraiser as a new family of FOUR! It's Daddy & Daughter "VS." post-natal Mama & Baby climbing for a cause! Since community and physical fitness are important to us, we can't think of a better reason to climb 12 flights together in support of our second home, The JCC in Manhattan.

  • Sofia, the energetic 2-yr old who's been spotted training by the fishie murals in the stairwell, says SHE has the clear advantage since she knows this course so well.
  • Mama Mel says don't count her out. Pregnancy may have gotten her out of shape but not out of strategy! 
  • Asher, the youngest participant in the BeneFIT at 6 wks old, is plotting to spit up on mama every few floors -- a deal he struck with his daddy and big sister in exchange for a mobile. (Competition rules allow him to ascend in a carrier.)
  • Daddy Mike will forget he's participating in this, due to sleep deprivation. But he'll be there with bells on, and would never miss a chance to hold the hand of his little girl on any of her "climbs" in life!

Who do you bet will make it to the top first...?! Your support for us and the JCC is appreciated.

With love,
The Donovans

More about the event:

The JCC in Manhattan’s beneFIT Your Community is a fundraiser for everybody! The JCC in Manhattan is locally and nationally recognized as a cornerstone of progressive, innovative programs for people at all ages and stages of life. But program and membership fees do not cover all of the costs necessary to serve our community. beneFIT Your Community is a special day designed for individuals and families to participate in a fitness challenge—CLIMBRIDE, or SWIM while raising critical funds to support the JCC. Participants are invited to work their way to better health while promoting the health of the JCC through their fundraising efforts. Make our community stronger by supporting the array of programs, scholarship opportunities, and free services the JCC provides every day. Be a part of  this exciting event knowing that you are making a tangible impact through your support. To learn more about our vast array of programs and services offered to the community throughout the year and how you can be more involved, please visit www.jccmanhattan.org. IT'S TIME TO GIVE!
