BENEFITING: NYRR Youth Programs
ORGANIZER: NYRR Youth Programs
EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2014
I'm excited to be running the 2014 NYC Marathon for such a great cause! On top of that there is also a possiblity that I may get to run the race with the ambassador of this charity herself, Ms. Caroline Wozniacki!! She had asked that I contribute to the Team for Kids charity which I have already done on her fundraiser page but lets show her that we really mean business and crush my fundraising goal on this page so that we can really make an impact on providing children access to physical fitness opportunties!!
Team for Kids is a committed group of adult runners from around the world who add meaning to their miles by raising funds for NYRR's Youth and Community Services programs while training for major endurance events. The funds they raise provide free or low-cost health and fitness programs to kids who would otherwise have little or no access to regular physical activity. These programs serve more than 200,000 children each year in more than 800 schools and community centers in New York City, across the nation, and around the world.
I'm a strong proponent in physical fitness and I think its of paramount importance to instill how important the value of fitness is to children at a young age.
Thank you for your donations, you are helping ensure that the next generation has an opportunity to adopt a healthy lifestyle!
