Dear Marathon Donors,

I'm very happy to report back to you on our Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. As we mentioned to you in our last correspondance, we have earmarked a portion of your 2012 marathon donations toward helping victims of the hurricane. On Veteran's Day, the WITS and Telepan teams, along with a great group of volunteers, chefs, and partner organizations, went out to Midland Beach on Staten Island. We served roughly 1,000 hot meals of homemade chili, soup, fresh bread, and sous vide meals of chicken, beef and butternut squash. We sent meals to go with families and with other aid efforts in the area, including the Red Cross, and were fortunate enough to have several dining tables and chairs donated so that families who chose to stay could enjoy their meals at the park. It was your generous donations that made this effort a success. Although you original donated to support our marathon team and our food/fitness programming in public schools, your dollars ended up going so much further. Not only have you helped us bring healthy food and fitness programming to more NYC public schools, but you have also helped bring much needed food and supplies to a community hard hit by Hurricane Sandy. We have made photos from the event available via Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Wellness-in-the-Schools), and a summary of the day's efforts is also available on our webpage (wellnessintheschools.org).

Dear Team WITS Supporters, …
Dear Team WITS Supporters,

We can't say it enough, thank you again for your efforts in cheering on our runners, for your donations, and for supporting Team WITS. We know that some of you have questions about what will happen to your donations now that the ING NYC Marathon has been cancelled, due to Hurricane Sandy. WITS will keep the donations made through Crowdrise to support our ongoing work. We have also decided to allocate a portion of your funds to support hurricane relief efforts. To date we have raised $19,950, with a base goal of $20K I would say we did pretty well considering all the circumstances!

We are currently developing plans for direct, grass roots ways to contribute to relief efforts. Last evening, Chef Bill Telepan, hosted a fully-booked fundraising dinner, which WITS supported. Chef Telepan donated the cost of the food so that 100% of the donations went directly to relief. He raised nearly $7,000! The WITS Team will also be assisting through volunteering, helping to get supplies out, and making homemade meals for those in need. We are using your funds to support these efforts.

Best wishes,

Reana Kovalcik
