In less than 8 weeks I will be running in my first Marathon! Quite honestly, it was never on my bucket list, but when New York Cares approached me and asked me to join their New York Cares Champions Team I could not say no.
New York Cares is a phenomenal volunteer organization, representing a team of donors, volunteers, and staff members who raise funds for programming that impacts more than 400,000 disadvantaged New Yorkers every year, meeting pressing community needs by mobilizing more than 64,000 caring New Yorkers in volunteer service each year.
As many of you know, I am one of those volunteers, working on many different projects, including job readiness, computer literacy and free tax preparation services, as well as running in Central Park each week with Achilles International to help athletes with disabilities.
In order to participate in the marathon I have committed to personally raising a minimum of $3,000 to support New York Cares. I would so appreciate your help in reaching the first rung on my ladder and raising $500 this week. Donating is easy. Just visit my new fund raising page https://www.crowdrise.com/petersattin
Your donation will go a long way to helping our fellow New Yorkers in need, and will make me feel that each step of the 500+ miles of training and the final (painful) 26.2 miles in November will have an impact much more long-lasting than my own aches and pains.
And, please come out on November 5th to cheer for me and 50,000+ of my closest friends, "Out here on the road again with Mad Dogs and Englishmen"
