BENEFITING: LA PALESTRA KIDS FOUNDATION INC
ORGANIZER: LA PALESTRA KIDS FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Exposing inner city families to a sustainable and healthy lifestyle through education, diet, and fitness is an unbelievably important service. My sister’s passion for her work with La Palestra Kids inspired me to join the fundraising team. The program’s mission resonates with me on a personal level now that I have a daughter. Equipping her with the knowledge to eat healthfully and live a healthy lifestyle is essential. It’s an honor to participate in the fundraising event and help this great organization continue to grow. I’m both excited and terrified to take on the NYC Marathon challenge.
