ORGANIZER: CRUTCHES 4 KIDS INC
EVENT: NYC Half 2012
EVENT DATE: Mar 18, 2012
Many of you know I've been working part-time for Crutches 4 Kids for the last year and half. It is a great start-up non-profit that focuses on recycling gently used crutches and getting them into the hands of disabled children who could greatly benefit from them. To learn more visit our website at www.crutches4kids.org.
To a disabled child living in abject poverty, a pair of crutches can be everything. It can enable them to join their friends in the classroom and on the playground, participate more in family routines, and ultimately better engage in their societies. In so doing, it can give them a sense of dignity, independence, and hope.
The $3,000+ I hope to raise through this half-marathon will go towards enhancing and expanding our recycling partnerships with hospitals around NYC AND establishing a small pilot fund to purchase local crutches for disabled children in Guatemala (more details to come).
Your donation will make a difference! Thank you for your support!
P.S. If you would live to DONATE BY CHECK please make them payable to "Crutches 4 Kids, Inc." and send it to:
