THE STORY:

This year I am once again running the NYC marathon and have chosen the Eugene Portela Memorial Fund through the United Way of Long Island as my charity of choice to raise money for. This fund was created by my Stepfather to honor his father Eugene and the spirit in which he lived his life, this charity is near and dear to him. Eugene Portela arrived on American shores in 1946 with no material possessions aboard a Portuguese transatlantic vessel. He became a self made man though hard work and perseverance, creating a life for his family and living the American dream, while staying true to his Portuguese heritage. The fund is intended to support special programs fro immigrants who undoubtedly faced challenges and prejudice. The funds mission is to provide a supportive environment and develop a system to help the assimilation to American culture and citizenship for immigrants.
