EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
I'm an avid runner, but the NYC Marathon isn’t just about the race for me. It's for Row New York.
Row New York empowers young people from New York City’s under-resourced communities to build strength, gain confidence, and pursue excellence through the unique sport of rowing.
99% of Row New York’s Youth program have completed high school in four years, compared to 65% of New York City’s public school students.
98% of Row New York’s graduates have gone on to college, the majority onscholarship, whereas the NY State Department determines only 30% of New York’s high school graduates are college ready.
91% of Row New York graduates have earned a degree or are on track to earn a degree.
Row New York’s competitive team has medaled at the New York State Championship for the past four years, and in its 10-year history, 99% of the graduates of its year-round program have gone on to college, the majority on scholarship, and 90% have remained on track to earn a post-secondary degree.
I’m running for Row New York because these numbers add up to success.
Please support me in my efforts.
