THE STORY:

Queens Centers for Progress wrote -

Please join me and my team of dedicated runners who make a difference in the lives of people with developmental disabilities! 

On March 20th, 2016 I will be running the United Airlines NYC Half Marathon.   I am pleased to be running on behalf of Queens Centers for Progress (QCP).

Queens Centers for Progress is dedicated to the goal of providing children and adults with developmental disabilities the opportunities to make choices which will maximize their skill development, independence, and integration into community life.  At the core of all the agency’s services is the deeply held belief in the development of the individual. QCP believes that all people can learn and that all people – in spite of any developmental disability – can lead more independent lives.

QCP provides programs and services that cater to the individual in order to meet their every need. The early childhood direction center, preschool and Apple Tree Nursery/Universal Pre-K programs reach children with Developmental Disabilities at a young age- they offer screening and early intervention. The adult center and Bellerose Campus offer education, therapy, job training, job placement, day programs, advocacy, service coordination and residency to adult members of the Queens community. The emphasis is on integrating their clients into the community, something they do very well.  Over 1200 individuals with Developmental disabilities benefit from these services on a daily basis. They are a small agency with a very big heart!

While a lot of QCP’s funding comes from government sources, there is still a wide gap between what is budgeted and what it costs to run these programs. The money that I am raising will help QCP fulfill their mission by making it possible for them to continue providing assistive devices for the children, and life experiences to program participants that would otherwise be unaffordable.

I have set a goal of $2000.00 and with your help I know I can reach it.

Please donate here for a secure online doation or if you prefer to write a check, please make a check payable to Queens Centers for Progress and mail it to: (write my name in the memo so they know who you are donating through)
