On May 17th, we'll participate in the Alliance’s 2nd annual Starlight 5K Canoe Challenge. Help us reach our goal by donating today. Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support our fundraising efforts.
Did you know that the Bronx River is the only freshwater in NYC? And it’s making headlines for a river coming back to life. Each year, the Alliance’s programs helps thousands of New Yorkers explore the river on canoes, bikes and on foot. With your help, more youth will be able to discover the river and learn how they can protect this precious resource.
You can also join this event to cheer us on or participate in the public celebration of the opening of Starlight Park. There will be fun-filled activities for the entire family including free community paddles, bike-loan outs, music and much more!
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too. With your help, we can help make this exciting event a huge success!
