THE STORY:

Hey all!

This year I will be racing in the Annual NYC Triathlon for a wonderful cause! I will be swimming 1 mile in the Hudson River, biking 25 miles up and down the West Side Highway, and running 6.2 miles through NYC Streets into Central Park and across the finish line to raise money for the kid's after-school program ABUNDANT WATERS. 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.

Hell's Kitchen is the neighborhood where I was born and raised, and in the 90's I was part of Abundant Waters. Being a part of the program has taught me so much about team work, patience, discipline, and the importance of creating bonds in a fun warm environment. The lessons I learned through Abundant Waters are ones I use everyday on a daily basis. I can say with confidence and a smile on my face that Abundant Waters played and integral role in shaping who I am today!

Please help me on my journey to the finish line and to reach my fundraising goal to support and help keep Abundant Waters going so they can keep giving back to kids in Hell's Kitchen, NYC!!!

--

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.
