BENEFITING: Queens Centers for Progress
ORGANIZER: Queens Centers for Progress
EVENT DATE: Oct 22, 2017
I am running my VERY FIRST! Marathon (26.2 miles yessssss!!!) to raise money for Queens Centers for Progress, in support of the amazing work they do each day and in honor of their commitment to providing person-centered services and support to children and adults who have developmental disabilities. The goal of these services and support is to promote independence, community involvement, and quality of life. They are great!!!!
Recognized for impeccable organization on a scenic course managed by the US Marines in Arlington, VA and the nation's capital, the Marine Corps Marathon is one of the largest marathons in the US and the world. The MCM is the largest marathon that doesn't offer prize money, earning its nickname, "The People's Marathon."
As most of you know- long distance running is very important and special to me. It has changed my life and allowed me to accomplish goals I never thought were possible. Your support and charitable donations to QCP are truely appreciated.
Run with purpose.
