BENEFITING: Transportation Alternatives, Inc.
ORGANIZER: Transportation Alternatives, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I’m honored and humbled to join Team TransAlt in the 2016 New York City Marathon this November.
In order to run I need to raise money, all of which will support the kind of advocacy work that makes this city better every day. Your tax-deductible donations will help this organization near and dear to my heart, Transportation Alternatives, which is filled with dedicated employees, passionate volunteers, and all-around amazing people, all working to make this city we love safe for people on two feet or two wheels. If you’ve ever walked around and suddenly stumbled across a new pedestrian plaza, TA probably had something to do with it. If you’ve ever biked to work and suddenly discovered your route now has a protected bike lane, there’s a good chance TA was involved. Even if you drive now and then — It’s okay! Don’t be ashamed! — that new 25 mph speed limit that’s keeping you and everyone else around you safe happened because of a lot of great people associated with Transportation Alternatives.
To sweeten the pot, anyone who donates $75 or more will be invited to join me on a group run/bicycle and tour through Manhattan's Central Park. I'll show you many interesting aspects of Central Park including some of my more secluded favorite spots and perhaps stop for some snacks and beverages. I’m hoping to turn this into quite the social affair, so the more people who donate, the bigger and better.
Thanks in advance for your generosity and support! I will carry the message of safe streets with me from Staten Island all the way to the finish line.
