BENEFITING: ROW NEW YORK
ORGANIZER: ROW NEW YORK
EVENT DATE: Mar 19, 2017
Hey friends & family! I am celebrating my 26th birthday on March 19th by running 13.1 miles to raise money for Row New York - a wonderful group of people who help NYC kids from under-resourced neighborhoods with academics and college preparation, all while instilling the values of my favorite sport: rowing.
Rowing taught me achievement follows only rigorous preparation.
Rowing taught me to be accountable and forthright with my teammates.
Rowing taught me pain and discomfort are temporary.
The list goes on, but these are the values that Row New York is teaching the next generation of young rowers. I draw on these lessons every day, so I am proud to support an organization that has committed itself to improving the lives of young men and women through a sport that continues to deeply affect both my actions and character.
