Hey Friends and Family,
As most of you know I started working for Win a little over a year ago! It has been an amazing step in life both professionally and personally. Getting to work with the families on a daily basis has been inspiring, rewarding and truly an honor.
This year, Matt and I are taking one of our own bucket list items to run the New York City Marathon on behalf of Win. Our goal is $5,000, and we're really hoping that you will help us get there!
Here's some more information on Win:
Tonight, nearly 60,000 people will sleep in New York City’s homeless shelters. 80% are families and 20% are children 5 years old or younger. Win is the largest provider of shelter and services for homeless families in NYC. Every night Win is 'home' to 4,700+ people including 2,600+ children.
Most of our families are headed by women, many of whom have fled domestic violence. These are the forgotten faces of homelessness – the mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and sisters who struggle to keep their families together and safe. The women who work long hours and make sacrifices few of us can fathom, all to give their children and grandchildren a chance at a better life.
Team Win is running to honor and support the thousands of families at Win who face a marathon every day on their way to a brighter future for themselves and their children.
