BENEFITING: MOUNT SINAI HOSPITAL
ORGANIZER: MOUNT SINAI HOSPITAL
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Dear family and friends,
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! On November 6th, I will be running my first marathon in New York City with the Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center's Run For Teens team.
I am proud to be running for this team because I am inspired by the MSAHC's mission to increase the availability of health care for at-risk youth. This is a cause that strikes a chord in my family, given my sibling's history of addiction and mental illness. I am determined to support an institution that alleviates the burden of seeking proper healthcare and empowers young people to take control of their physical and mental well-being.
Please read more about the center below and consider supporting our team. Any donation would make an impact and would be hugely appreciated!
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!
