BENEFITING: MVRP Foundation
EVENT DATE: Oct 10, 2017
I am running in the 2017 NYC Marathon to raise money for our important cause, the MVRP Foundation, Inc.
Alison Rosen and I formed this foundation in memory of Alison's son, Michael Vincent Rosen-Pipitone.
Michael was amused that I do these types of races. Now, he is my inspiration. When the race courses get tough and I am tired, I gain strength and persevere as I think about him. His spirit and smile will get me to the finish line. Michael always was striving to overcome the obstacles in his life. He did it with love and compassion and determination.
Our fundraiser is providing scholarships to young artistic creative people in financial or emotional need in the Arts & to Art Organizations that Michael was associated with and we support mental health groups.
We believe in ending the stigma. we believe in empathy. we believe in the Arts as a way to communicate and unite humanity. we believe in physical health and exercise. And so I run. Run to the finish line to reach our goals.
Please join me and help us to help others by donating on our Crowdrise page. We donate to NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness), provide scholarships to the PIT, Peoples Improv Theater, and to students at Edward R. Murrow High School and BMCC, Borough of Manhattan Community College.
With your support we can continue to help these young talents achieve more than they once thought they could.
We desire to create a Kinder World Through Art and Humor, as Michael was doing.
