Please support me as I join Team Abundant Waters and Swim/Bike/Run my way through the Big Apple to raise money for kids!
I am racing in a City I love and working to raise money for an important charity that is important to the children of Hell's Kitchen. Please support them by making a donation on my fundraising page- no donation is too small!
- Economy been good to you? Donate $1 for each meter of the swim! COST- $1500
- Economy not been so good to you? How about $1 for every kilometer I spend on the bike? COST- $40
- Just can't stand swimming or cycling? How about $1 for ever kilometer I run? COST= $10
- I've been in NYC for 13 years, so how about a minimum donation for one of each of my years in this great City!!! COST- $13.00
- Feeling really great about supporting me and this amazing charity? Add them all up for a donation of $1563!!!! (If that seems to be too much, go back to one of the other options! See how small those numbers look now?!?!?!)
Whatever you can offer up is truly appreciated! Read below for more on Abundant Waters and thanks for supporting me as I get back on the triathlon road after a hiatus since IM USC in August!
MORE ABOUT 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.
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.
