I am humbled and honored to have the privilege this year to run the NYC Marathon as a member of "Team Work", the official TCS New York City Marathon charity team for Dress for Success.
Dress for Success is a not-for-profit global organization with 140 affiliates in 19 countries that guides disadvantaged woman on their path to economic independence. I have served on the Board of Directors for Dress for Success since 2003 because I can think of no better way to try to make a difference than to help provide women in need a helping hand to get back to work. Getting women back to work enables them transform their lives, which in turn improves their family's lives, future generations and their communities.
Dress for Success provides these woman not only with interview appropriate clothing but also provides training and support through an incredible network of supporters. SInce 1997 Dress for Success has reached over 850,000 women working towards self-sufficiency. We can help this number grow!
This incredible opportunity brings together my love for running with something much bigger... helping to create a world where women do not live in poverty, where women are financially independent, treated with dignity and respect and are directly impacting their lives and those of their families. Dress for Success aspires to a world that fully harnesses the power of women and recognizes their role in economic sustainability.
Help me pay it forward. I'm taking care of the hard part (unless anyone wants to run with me?) ... all you have to do is donate!
