BENEFITING: TUESDAYS CHILDREN
ORGANIZER: TUESDAYS CHILDREN
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Thank you for taking the time to consider contributing to this incredible charity for my run in the New York Marathon!
Formed in the aftermath of Tuesday, September 11, 2001, Tuesday's Children is a response and recovery organization that supports youth, families, and communities impacted by terrorism and traumatic loss.
Tuesday's Children is a terrific organization which helps children in tough times grow stronger. They actively support placing Children into mentorships and outdoor programs to support their growth beyond a traumatic situation. As someone who was fortunate to grow up enjoying the great outdoors, and as a current outdoor teacher/enthusiast, I truly believe outdoor education is the best gift to any soul. The great outdoors inspires strength through exploration. Another reason for this cause is my relationship to others who have fallen ill to terminal depression. This organization is a testament in giving back to those who have longed for an opportunity to get back on their feet in tough times; particularly among youth with the longest futures ahead of them.
Tuesday's Children is an official charity partner of the 2016 TCS NYC Marathon! Being part of Team Tuesday's means being part of a group of athletes pushing themselves to new limits and achieving new goals together while fundraising for the individuals and families that count on our important programs and services.
