Thank you for your interest in my fundraising efforts.
Sincere appreciation to everyone very much for all of your support: emotional not just financial!
I am joining the Cares Champions Team of New York Cares to participate in the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon.
*I must raise a minimum of $3,000 before November 3, 2017*
After moving to NYC last summer, I joined New York Cares and among other projects served as a SAT tutor last school year at Gotham Professional Arts Academy located in Bed-stuy Brooklyn.
Gratefully, the young scholars taught me much more than I could teach them.
I am running to raise awareness, make my contribution, and to give back to my community as much as I can.

New York Cares is proud to participate in the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon. As the city’s largest volunteer management organization, we’re thrilled to have a team of runners that have committed their time and resources to raise money for New York Cares’ impactful volunteer programs that serve over 400,000 disadvantaged New Yorkers every year.
Please help support these runners and their mission to address issues related to education, hunger, homelessness, and environmental revitalization throughout the city. You can make a donation in support of a particular runner or make a general donation in support of the entire New York Cares team. Thanks to the time and effort donated by our 64,000 volunteers, every dollar New York Cares receives translates into six dollars of value back into the community. 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
