Bora Kara

THE STORY:

I am running NYC Marathon for Playworks! And I am reaching out to you for support...


Help us;

reduce bullying

improve school climate 

increase student engagement 

while playing games.


I am who I am today becuase of play.

Playing soccer on the streets of Istanbul, then basketball and all of a suden I am an adult phisically, but still a kid inside who wants to play...


Story of how this happened;

4 year Ritual - grab a coffe, meet up w/ friends in the corner of Lafayette & Bedford Ave ( also where we lived) in Brooklyn and watch and cheer for the runners for 4 hours.

Got inspired and thought, I can do this. And here I am. 


I need to raise $10k for Playworks combining my Oakland and NY network...


Playworks’ vision is that one day every child in America will get to play—every day. We are changing school culture by leveraging the power of safe, fun, and healthy play at school every day. We create a place for every kid on the playground to feel included, be active, and build valuable social and emotional skills. We offer an essential opportunity for children to explore their imaginations, to connect with other kids, and to stretch and grow physically, emotionally and socially.
