THE STORY:

#25...In 1991 I ran my first new york city marathon to help me get motivated towards a healither life. Then I did it again, and again, and again… Year after year I continued to run the nyc marathon, each year for a different reason/motivation.  Then a few years ago I started working at New York Road Runners and learned more about the free youth running programs. Inspired to put meaning behind my miles, I started to raise money for each marathon as part of Team for Kids, NYRR’s charity team that helps fund free youth running programs and events across New York City and the country.

Now, as CEO of New York Road Runners, I visit local schools that benefit from NYRR’s programing.  Running with the kids is an amazing experience! I’ve met with principals and teachers who rave about the impact the programs are having in the kids’ daily lives physically and academically. Most importantly, I’ve run with the program participants who love running, are having fun, and leading healither lives. 

On November 6, 2016, I will run the TCS New York City Marathon, again in support of NYRR Team for Kids. Please join me in helping to provide free youth programs and events to more than 215,000 kids.  In honor of my 25th marathon, I ask that you consider a donation in an increment of $25. Here are some ways in which your support gets kids running and can change their lives: 

$2,500 – Sponsor a Run for the Future participant

$1,000 – Cover the cost of a track meet for 300 kids

$500 – Help a kid go to running camp

$250 – Provide transportation for a team to a race

$100 – Buy medals for Mighty Milers who complete 26.2 miles

$50 – Buy a pair of running shoes for a kid

$25 – Support a Mighty Milers for a year

Every dollar donated, will help NYRR reach more kids and ensure that we help and inspire them through running, the mission of NYRR.

This year I have set a goal of $25,000 to support #25…and have donated $2,500 towards my goal. Thank you for all of your support over the years, it means so much to me, and most of all to the kids that you are supporting!
