BENEFITING: Noahs Arc Foundation
ORGANIZER: Noahs Arc Foundation
I'll be running the 2017 TCS NYC Marathon on November 5th, and need your help in raising money for a great cause. Below is information on the Foundation that I will be supporting this year. Thanks in advance for your support!
Noah’s Arc Foundation programs are focused on two areas: art and sports. Through the expression of art and the discipline of sports, Noah's Arc works to develop the confidence and foster the passion that exists within every child. The goal of the Noah's Arc programs and workshops is to help children tap into their unique passions and achieve their full potential in all areas of their lives.
Noah's Arc arts programs give young people in under-served areas and those who are dealing with emotional and/or physical adversity the opportunity to engage in powerful self-expression. Through the discipline of sports, Noah's Arc works to develop the confidence and foster the passion that exists within every child. Players become ambassadors for the Drop of Consciousness™ movement, bringing messages of peace, positive change and non-violence back to their neighborhoods.
Additionally, Chicago is in the midst of a gun violence epidemic. Instead of preaching to youth about what they shouldn’t be doing, Noah's Arc shines a light on what they can be doing to create positive change. Noah's Arc community outreach recognizes the real people making positive changes for Chicago every day.
