THE STORY:

Come on...dip your toe in and support Team Abundant Waters!

Never one to turn down a chance to jump in a river or lake, I'm ready to swim my fastest mile yet for the kids at PS 111! 

As part of the AW Relay Team (with Amelia Fiore on bike and Annette DiIorio on the run) we're taking on the NYC Triathlon to raise money for the Abundant Waters kids.

Abundant Waters After-School Program was founded in September 1993 at PS 111, a Title I school (children come from households with a below poverty level income) in New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood.

The Abundant Waters program started out small with 12 sixth-grade girls in a dance class. But soon sports, drama, chess, art, music were added. Children flocked to the program, soaking it all up. In fact, that’s what the name Abundant Waters means—that every child deserves “watering” or nurturing and the chance to bloom.

The program is now in its 20th year and presently at PS 51, also a Title I public school, since 2004. The program serves over 100 children, providing daily homework tutoring, chess instruction and sports participation. Weekly classes include dance, art, music, cooking, knitting, wall climbing and computer skills. There are also bowling excursions and trips to quality films.
