BENEFITING: NIGHTINGALE-BAMFORD SCHOOL
ORGANIZER: NIGHTINGALE-BAMFORD SCHOOL
This year, I will be running the 2017 NYC Marathon on behalf of my daughter Sadie and the class of 2028 at The Nightingale-Bamford School! You could call this a ‘bucket list’ item because the idea has always been in the back of my mind, but the thrill of the challenge may be what really caught my attention.
Every day I watch my daughter and her friends enter those blue doors with a smile on their face and a bounce in their step. Nightingale’s philosophy is to educate the hearts and minds of each and every girl….but it is so much more special than that.
Nightingale provides our girls with a safe place to learn and grow, a place where they are empowered, inspired, and challenged to excel both in the classroom and amongst their friends. For this reason, I urge all of my family and friends to help donate to our schools annual fund which most importantly helps provide financial aid. Every girl should have an opportunity to be a part of this amazing community.
So, as Sadie and her class are challenged each day to think ‘outside of the box’ and to expand their minds, I will take on a different kind of challenge. This will be physically grueling but I know that the sense of accomplishment and empowerment that I will feel at the finish line will radiate to both my daughter and her brother.
