Will you support the future of healthy cities worldwide?
The Standard and the Highline are emblematic of a new generation of city dwellers in the 21st century. We set the standards to the highest line only to exceed them with flying colors. Together, we support the arts, the environment, and historical preservation.
Please help The Standard All Star's raise money for Friends of the Highline, the non-profit responsible for repurposing the freight train line that is now the nation's most visited public park and an award winning feat of landscape design.
Though the Highline is part of NYC's Dept. of Parks and Recreation, over 90% of the Highline's budget/operation costs come from Friends of the Highline. Your support is much appreciated!
So follow us as we set out for Indonesia, the Bering Strait, the Seychelles... wherever the wind may blow!!!
Paired up in teams of two, dressed in my favoritehero’s garb from the 80s and 90s, shortly after sunrise and a slap up breakfast at Milk Studios NYC, a siren will sound setting off the start of the first Escape for Good and our call to get the hell outta town… all headed together into the distance on a mission to raise money for my favorite cause!
Sponsored by their friends and family, the competitors have one goal: get as far away from the start line as possible in just 24 hours and raise as much money as they can for charity -- with no cash, no credit cards, nothing but their wits.
Every team will be competing for a charity of their choice. Check out the leaderboard to join a team – the amount you raise or give is a vote of confidence for the competitors you back. The more money your team starts with on September 30, the more likely they are to win extra donations from our sponsors.
We have lots of awesome prizes (like an iPad3) for you to use to get your friends and family to donate to your fundraiser. Click here to check it out, choose a prize and email everyone you know about it.
