BENEFITING: YMCA of Greater New York
ORGANIZER: YMCA of Greater New York
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Why, The Y?
I have been involved with the Y for 3 years now. My involvement with the Y started out as a simple gym membership. That gym membership turned into exercising and building with a diverse group of folks, which eventually allowed us to forge friendships.
The Y provides a positive alternative to the youth in my underserved community. I am raising money for the Y with the hopes that the youth in my and other underserved communities can get a small glimpse of what they can do and become through me. In a world that is flawed as it pertains to unity and peace, plagued by turmoil and hate, one doesn't have to look far in regards to finding a positive cause, so on 11/6/16, I am #RunningToLove as my cause. Love and support for the diverse group of runners that will be running with me. Love and support for the police who on that day will have the interest of our safety. Love and support for Cohens Children's Medical center who just like The Y cares for children so greatly.
Team YMCA is running in the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon, raising funds for the YMCA of Greater New York!
