ORGANIZER: NEW HEIGHTS YOUTH INC
EVENT: NYC Half 2012
EVENT DATE: Mar 18, 2012
This will be my first time running the NYC Half Marathon. In fact, this will be my first time running a long distance event. For those of you that knew me since high school, I was a sprinter. I considered 400m to be distance. Since high school, I ran a little track in college. That was five years ago. Since then, I've done Capoeira here and there to keep in shape. I also tore my ACL and meniscus about a year and a half ago. To recover from my surgery and get my knee back into shape, I recently picked up running again and tried long distance. So now, I'll be running the Half and for a great organization: New Heights.
New Heights is an organization that helps youth in Harlem excel in academics and basketball. They have an 80% retention rate all the while instilling values and life skills to help them succeed beyond sports. So thanks to all who have donated so far!! I truly appreciate it!!
