BENEFITING: The Fortune Society
ORGANIZER: The Fortune Society
EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
On Sunday, November 3, 2013, I will run in the ING New York City Marathon with The Fortune Flyers. Fortune Society provides essential services to individuals re-entering society after incarceration, as they face challenges that would test the most resilient among us. Fortune’s holistic, one-stop resources - counseling, health services, substance abuse treatment, education, housing assistance, advocacy, career development, and community education - assist and support them as they become true contributors to society.
I am currently an intern at Fortune helping with a housing advocacy campaign, and I believe deeply in their mission. I've met with Fortune staff and clients -- Fortune is an amazing organization that does exceptional work, and I'm excited to be running my first marathon with such a great team!!
Thank you for your support and your donation!
