BENEFITING: NYRR Youth Programs
NYRR sponsors free running-based youth programs that promote children's physical fitness, character development, and personal achievement in under-served communities in New York City and around the world. These programs currently serve over 100,000 children a week in hundreds of schools and community centers. However, many of these children lack the proper running shoes or equipment.
For the past five years NYRR Youth Programs have held a Holiday Sneaker Drive where people are asked to donate a new pair of sneakers to a child in need. For the past two years the Flyers have joined this worthy campaign by seeking to purchase running shoes for some of these young runners participating in the program. Last year we were able to assist 30 children in two schools in NYC. In addition, our commitment to NYRR’s Youth and Community Services Programs has helped the Flyers secure Olympian Amy Hastings for our Pasta Dinner.
Please consider donating and help us support young runners in our community. For just $30 you can make huge impact on child’s fitness and health by purchasing a new pair of running shoes for them. However, any donation is appreciated. A few dollars today will help foster the runners of tomorrow.
