BENEFITING: Queens Centers for Progress
ORGANIZER: Queens Centers for Progress
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I'm running the NYC Marathon on Sunday, Nov. 6th, and could use your support. I'm one of ten on a charity team running for Queens Centers for Progress (formerly known as the United Cerebral Palsy Queens). This is the fifth year the team has chosen to raise funds for this organization by running the NYC Marathon. The team again chose to run for QCP because the organization fills a great need in the community to assist children and adults with developmental disabilities and most importantly because 100% of the charitable funds raised by the team go directly to QCP’s mission of helping individuals make progress toward Independence, achievement and community involvement. I visit QCP year after year and I can tell you that the work they do is extraordinary. It's a wonderful organization that continues to provide comprehensive assistance to those children, and adults, with developmental disabilities.
Each year these marathons get more difficult, but visiting Queens Centers for Progress certainly puts life in perspective, and provides a vivid reminder of how fortunate we, and our families, are. No doubt finishing this year will be a challenge. Your donation will certainly make it easier, and would be greatly appreciated.
