My name is Pat Nerney. I currently live in Hoboken, NJ and work in downtown New York City at Nasdaq. I am asking for your help in donating to the Covenant House Charity on my behalf. In exchange for your donation, I will be training to run 26.2 miles in the NYC Marathon. Covenant House is a charity my family has been involved with as long as I can remember and gives us the opportunity to help young people who have been down on their luck. Covenant House is an established charity that has been helping troubled youth since 1972. They work with young people as soon as they arrive at the front door, regardless of the reasons that brought them there. Whether they are running away from home, were thrown out by a family member, or are coming in from the subways or the streets, homeless kids have a place at Covenant House New York - no questions asked.
