BENEFITING: SPARROWS NEST OF THE HUDSON VALLEY INC
This November, I will proudly join the Sparrow's Nest Team for the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon for the 2nd year. Due to the overwhelming success of last year's event, our Sparrow's Nest team has tripled in size from last year, and we are now 150 runners strong, traveling to show our support of Sparrow's Nest. Our team's success last year and the bond we created with each other inspired and motivated me to run again in support of this wonderful organization. This organization holds a special place in my heart, as I have been involved with it since its inception, and I am so proud of how it has grown and has spread its love to so many families.
I ask you to please sponsor me in this event and help me in my fundraising efforts to expand Sparrow's Nest's love and services further in our community. Our mission is founded by love and community, cooking and delivering meals to the families affected with cancer in areas of the Hudson Valley. Sparrow's Nest provides 2 homemade trays of food to our recipients each week. Did you know the average meal takes 4 hours to prepare: planning the menu, a trip to the grocery store, prepping the food and cooking the dish? Our primary goal is to give a family some of those precious hours back so they can concentrate on their health.
Your thoughtful donation today means the world to a family in need. It means a mom or dad can get extra sleep. It means a child can have a healthy meal while their parent gets better. It means a grocery bill is cut in half while a family's expenses blow up on copays and out of pocket medical bills. It means more than you can imagine. From too close personal experience, I know how very much this loving service means to an entire family. Last year's team helped raise critical funds to build the incredible Sparrow's Nest commercial kitchen, which has enabled Sparrow's Nest to expand their services to reach more families, and now the recipients include moms AND dads. This has been such a significant and awe-inspiring year of growth for Sparrow’s Nest, and your sponsorship is so important to help us reach our goal to broaden these great efforts.
