BENEFITING: NYRR Youth Programs

THE STORY:

This is one of my favorite charity (against childhood obesity). If I can reach the charity amount that I pledged, I would be able to run the NYC Marathon 2012 as a member of Team for Kids.

Message from Team for Kids
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks so much for supporting Team for Kids through Crowdrise. Every dollar you raise through Crowdrise will help ensure that children in New York City, nationally, and in Africa can enjoy the gift of running.   We know you are doing a really awesome thing, but don't just take our word for it. Consider the story of Brandon, an eighth-grader at a Brooklyn middle school. Brandon came out to run a road race in December wearing tennis shoes with gaping holes in the toes. Thanks to generous donors and fundraisers like you, NYRR youth programs was able to provide Brandon with a new pair of tennis shoes. What's more, the dollars raised through Team for Kids support many other elements of our youth programs, like team uniforms, transportation to races, and training for volunteer coaches and staff.  

As you also know, childhood obesity is quickly becoming an epidemic. One in three children born in the year 2000 or later is expected to develop type 2 diabetes in his or her lifetime. For African-American and Hispanic children, this rate jumps to one in two. Something must be done.

By fundraising for Team for Kids, you help provide needed program funding to ensure that these children can enjoy fitness and health related programming designed to put them on an active path early in life.   Thank you again for making the decision to join our Team. Please use our website, www.nyrrf.org, to educate yourself on our programs as you ask family and friends for support.   We wish you all the best as you work toward your running and fundraising goals. Feel free to get in touch with us at teamforkids@nyrr.org should you have any questions along the way.
