I recently relocated from New York City to Zuni, NM. In our short time here, I've been inspired by the history, culture and strong community efforts to promote health and well-being.
I'm using the marathon as an opportunity to fundraise for the Zuni Youth Enrichment Project (ZYEP). ZYEP supports a summer camp, hiking and walking trails, community gardens, youth leadership programs, sports leagues and after-school activities. I've personally benefited from ZYEP's hard work as I've trained for the marathon on the community trails.
If you have the ability to contribute, any donation would be greatly appreciated and it will be put to good use. I've set an ambitious goal of $6,293 in honor of Zuni's elevation. ZYEP has 501c3 status and their website provides more information about their incredible work: https://www.zyep.org/
