EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Hello friends, family, and supporters! On November 6th 2016 I will be running in my first TCS New York City Marathon to raise money for the Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center (AHC). This is an incredible organization whose staff cares deeply about young people and providining them with high-quality medical care and support, regarless of their ability to pay.
I've spent the last 7 years working and volunteering in health education for teens in New York City, and the AHC at Mount Sinai is a critical service provider and educator for teens who seek out resources to get and stay healthy. Please read more info below and consider donating generously to support their amazing work!
MOUNT SINAI HOSPITAL wrote -
Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center (the Center) is a unique, free health clinic providing comprehensive and integrated medical, sexual and reproductive, mental health, dental, optical and health and wellness education services to more than 11,000 young people between the ages of 10 and 24 each year. At the Center, all young people are welcome to receive quality health services that are confidential and provided in a warm, welcoming and safe health home by experts in adolescent health. For 48 years, the Center has been a critical resource for young people in NYC and beyond, most of whom would otherwise go without care.
We invite you to run for this important cause to make a difference in the lives of our young people, and the health of our community. Every $1,000 raised will provide a full year of comprehensive health care to a young person in need. Please support our efforts to keep our youth happy, healthy and well educated, with hopes and opportunities, by preventing disease and promoting health.
We hope to see you at the finish line. Thank you!
