THE STORY:


Dear Friends,

It's been a crazy year for me, so what better time to run this year's New York City Marathon on Sunday, November 5th! I’m running my third marathon to raise funds for The Saint & Streetfighter Foundation, which was setup to honor my Mom, and for Rebuilding Together NYC, the local affiliate of a nationwide nonprofit that my Mom founded that is rebuilding the homes of low-income homeowners, rebuilding community centers that serve low-income communities, training low-income people in construction trades and, most importantly, restoring pride, warmth and safety to our neighbors in need. 

I know the organization well as I've served on the board of directors of Rebuilding Together NYC for the last 10+ years - the last 5+ of which we have dedicated to rebuilding Hurricane Sandy damaged homes. 

Everyone deserves a warm, safe and dry place to live, right? Will you help me raise money to help our neighbors in need? Will you donate $1, $5 or $10 per mile?

Thank you!

John Scott


MORE ABOUT SAINT AND STREETFIGHTER FOUNDATION

The Saint and Streetfighter Foundation continues a lifetime of social justice work begun by Patty Johnson, with a focus on grant making and programs related to reconciliation, home rehabilitation, and helping people in need. The Foundation was named after an award that Patty received ("The Saint and Streetfighter Award") in the 1980's on the occasion of Patty's four-year anniversary as Executive Director of Christmas in April (the predecessor to Rebuilding Together) which read, in part:
"In gratitude for her love, her wisdom, her compassion, and her jubilant energy ... She inspired us to do more than we ever thought we could. She brought hope and joy to others who had nothing left but faith. We search the horizon for another Patty. But none comes, or ever will: for her class is hers alone."

Patty Johnson was a tireless advocate for those in need. She devoted her professional life to non-profit social justice work. Ever-passionate and enthusiastic, Patty impacted the lives of hundreds of thousands of low-income homeowners, allowing older adults to age in place, helping injured veterans and people with disabilities to live with dignity and giving young children around the country a safe place to live and learn.

She proudly displayed this award in a space she created for her young grandchildren prior to her sudden passing in 2017.
