BENEFITING: Catalog for Giving
EVENT DATE: Jul 19, 2015
On July 19th I am competing in the 2015 NYC Triathlon to support The Catalog for Giving of NYC. The Catalog operates like a fund of funds for NYC's most creative emerging youth development programs. It scours the City to find the best new programs and provides not only funding, but also guidance and mentoring to ensure the success of the programs.Our partner programs engage the City's undeserved youth with sports such as cycling, basketball and soccer, arts, academics and more.
Three years ago, I was so moved by The Catalog's mission and the kids it serves that I decided to help found its junior board called Future of Giving, or FOG. OUR group raises funds, volunteers with our member programs and helps engage the next generation of Catalog supporters.
I am dedicating the funds I raise in the 2015 NYC Triathlon to Catalog member program, ScriptEd, which equips students in under-resourced schools with the fundamental coding skills and professional experiences that create access to careers in technology.
Thank you for your support!
