Please Help Me Reach My Goal by November 1st.
This crazy team of Runners that you see on this page are some of the kindest people I know! TEAM QCP is participating as a NYRR Charity partner for the 6th year! Some of my team mates here are raising money for QCP for their first time and some are back for their 3rd, 4th or even 5th time! They are a very dedicated group of runners who are committed to helping over 1200 individuals with developmental disabilities that benefit from the supports and services that QCP offers.
I am not the type of person to excpect people to do anything that I would not do myself, so for the third year I am running a marathon as part of Team QCP and fundraising along side these guys! I was supposed to do NYC this year but I would rather be out there cheering for my team than running so instead I signed up for the Philadelphia Marathon on November, 20th.
Your donations help QCP to purchase items that are not covered by the funding we receive from the government. Our therapists and support staff cannot do their jobs without the tools they need to help our individuals achieve their goals toward independence and community invovement and integration. Technology is constantly changing. Communication devices can turn isolation into involved and assistive devices can turn inactivity into engagement. Without the additional support of friends like you, it is very hard for QCP to make that happen!
As always, from the bottom of my heart, I thank each and every one of you who support my running habit year after year. It was a life changer for me and any way I can help others through running, I will :) I am so blessed to have been able to turn that passion into a career here at QCP.
