ORGANIZER: STOKED MENTORING
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2011
dear friends + fam,
when i decided to run the 2011 marathon, i thought long and hard about organizations i would want to fundraise for. STOKED was an organization i became familiar with about two years ago, and their mission was one i immediately fell in love with. running and riding have been loves of mine, and to use action sports as a platform to empower the youth is something i strongly support.
your support means the world to me. and your support will carry me during those long 26.2 miles to the finish line.
a little bit about STOKED MENTORING:
Team Stoked is a group of tastemakers who proactively support the Stoked mission on foot, board, or bike. We believe that action sports are a means to empowering youth from under-served communities to achieve a more successful future. We are willing to prove this by mentally and physically challenging ourselves through sport.
This is Stoked's 4th consecutive year as a bronze level charity partner of the ING New York City Marathon! All the funds raised through Team Stoked will directly support Stoked's action sport-based youth development programs in New York City and Los Angeles.
