The marathon is done and we raised over $3500! Crazy! Thank you all so much everyone! See More

THE STORY:

We are Allison, Brigitte and Melissa, and we’re running the TCS NYC Marathon this year to raise money for our childrens’ school - PS166 in Queens. All of us had a guaranteed entry to the marathon, so we don’t need to fundraise to get a spot, but we think that the marathon is an awesome way to generate some donations, especially because our school is about to get the New York Road Runners Mighty Milers program, so hopefully we will be seeing an increased interest in all things running in the upcoming school year! The marathon is 26.2 miles. Imagine what a difference we could make if 100 people gave $26.20. PS166 is a big elementary school, around 1200 children, but it really doesn’t feel that way. It has the heart of a little village - it’s a close-knit community. Our wonderful principal knows every single one of the kids’ names. All of the teachers are caring and so, so hardworking. And we are a high-achieving school! In the 2015-16 year we were named a Dual Language program Model School, as well as a New York State Reward School. Finally, in 2015-16, the PTA organized a whole bunch of booster programs for every grade, so all the students get extensions in many aspects of the arts and sciences. For example, 5th grade did a project with the NY Historical Society, 4th grade did ballroom dancing, 3rd grade did chess and the younger grades did Percussion. And we have achieved and organized all of this despite being a Title 1 school, meaning that over 70% of the kids qualify for a free lunch. Because of our demographics, we can’t rely on parent donations to raise money, and we try to do a lot of fundraising, because we would love to keep all of these cool programs going and even extend them! Next year the 5th grade will add in hip-hop as another booster. Obviously all of these partnerships cost money! Each of the grades do a fall and a spring booster, and each program costs several thousand dollars. We would love to be able to contribute some more to this wonderful school and are hoping with your help we can make a real difference.
