Last year, Newark Councilman Ron C. Rice ran his first marathon, the Atlantic City Marathon, and raised over $6,000 for two charities. This year, he is running his first ING NYC Marathon to raise funds for seven (7) nonprofits in the Newark, NJ area. Specifically, running to support: 1) The West Ward Library Endowment Fund, 2) The West Ward Economic Development Corporation, 3) Project Re-Direct, 4) South Ward Youth Council, 5) RESPECT Foundation, 6) Roselle Collaborative, and 7) La Casa de Don Pedro's Hispanic Women's Resources Center.
Please support these great organizations by making all checks payable to "The West Ward Collective, Inc." and mail to P.O. Box 6158 Newark, NJ 07106. You can also mail or bring your donation to the Councilman's office at 920 Broad Street, Room 304, Newark, NJ 07102. Contributions are tax deductible and an online link to contribute online will soon be available as well. Please note which charity or charities you would like to give directly towards or your gift will be distributed equally among the 7 organizations.
