EVENT: 2011 ING New York City Marathon - $1 Mil a Mile

EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2011

THE STORY:

On Sunday, November 6th, I will be running in the New York City Marathon. I will run 26.2 miles all across New York City for charity.

The charity I am running for is BronxWorks, a social service agency in the South Bronx. BronxWorks feeds, shelters, teaches, and supports its neighbors to build a stronger community. Your pledges will help support a scholarship in memory of Darian Q. Armfield.

On Friday July 8th, BronxWorks staff lost a dynamic member of their team. Darian Armfield was an Education and Employment Specialist for the Young Adult Internship Program in the BronxWorks Workforce Development Department. He dedicated his time and effort to help underprivileged youth realize their full potential. He will forever be missed, but not forgotten.

The scholarship will be awarded to one or two dynamic youth depending on need. The Young Adult Internship Program (YAIP) youth are low-income residents of South Bronx neighborhoods. They are unengaged (not in school, training, or employment), but demonstrate potential for success. In their drive to plan for their future they participate in 12-week internships, provide peer support to others, and work intensively with an education and employment specialist. Students on an education track also work with a college advisor.

 

Please help me inspire youth and reach my goal. Thank you

 

Each year at 30 locations, BronxWorks helps 35,000 low-income Bronx residents improve their lives. From toddlers to seniors, we feed, shelter, teach and support our neighbors and together are building a stronger community. BronxWorks is making a significant impact in the heart of our nation’s poorest urban district.
