BENEFITING: New York Cares
ORGANIZER: New York Cares
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I will be running the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon in two weeks! To make my miles more meaningful I am running for New York Cares, the city's largest volunteer network. I'm fortunate to be approaching my third year as a Volunteer Team Leader. During this time I've had the privilege to work on 40 projects ranging from youth basketball coaching, working with special needs students, cleaning up parks and distributing winter coats.
Running 26.2 is hard, but it pales in comparison to the challenges many New Yorkers face on a daily basis. Thank you for taking the time to support this cause.
Every dollar New York Cares receives gets magnified by the power of six, thanks to the time and effort donated by 62,000 volunteers. See how your donation can make a lasting impact on New York:
- $2,500 allows 92 adults to benefit from job training
- $1,000 enables 65 low-income families to claim their tax refunds and credits
- $500 helps us to collect and distribute 166 warm winter coats to at-risk New Yorkers
- $100 gives three public high school students help with math and science
