THE STORY:

Hey there, my name is Henry Watt and I'm currently living in New York City! This year has had many challenges and triumphs for me so I thought i'd cap it off by running the most iconic marathon in the world for a good cause.

I will be running for Play Rugby USA (who I am currently working for), a great charity which specalises in sports based youth development. Using the great sport of Rugby as a tool to develop at-risk youth around New York City. Play Rugby USA has been a great supporter of me as well, enabling me to work for them throughout the year, and supporting me through tough personal challenges.

Earlier this year, my Dad passed away from Cancer while I was still living in New York. A great supporter of my running career, I will also be running the NYC Marathon in my fathers honour. Play Rugby were very flexible in helping me cope with the situation.

 

 

 

A brief rundown on PLAY RUGBY USA below -

At Play Rugby USA our mission is to use the unique power of rugby to inspire and empower youth, primarily from underserved communities, to go-forward and realize their true potential.

We believe that young people in underserved communities deserve every opportunity to be successful and that Rugby is a unique vehicle for developing skills that are applicable for young people to succeed in school, the community and in living a healthy life.

We serve 3,500 boys (60%) and girls (40%) during out-of-school-time hours through partnerships with 150 schools and youth organizations per year. Our participants are constantly problem solving, goal setting, and challenging themselves, through a series of structured games, physical activities, and competitions. We use these activities, and connections to their coach, to empower participants to exhibit values, beliefs and behaviors that ultimately enable them to maximize their potential on and off the field.

Our results:

85% of our participants improve their fitness

73% improve their academic performance

95% develop a trusting relationship with their coach-mentor

100% of our high school Academy students graduate on time

100% of our high school Academy seniors enroll in college
