THE STORY:

Hello family and friends!

I am very excited to share with you all that I will be running the TCS NYC Marathon this November!  I first and foremost want to thank the UJA-Federation of New York for giving me the opportunity to run in this amazing race and for helping me accomplish this long time goal of mine.  I also want to thank them for involving me in Sports for Youth, a UJA-Federation initiative.  I will be running as a member of the UJA-Federation of New York’s Sports for Youth team. 

Growing up in New York City, I enjoyed an active lifestyle and loved running and playing sports.  Sports for Youth brings the joy of sports to children of all ages, ethnic and religious backgrounds, and athletic abilities.  Grants provided by Sports for Youth directly benefit more than 12,000 children, and they help countless others at Jewish community centers and Y’s, camps, and other agencies with sports-related programs.

I am very passionate about this mission as playing sports as a kid has shaped me into the person I am today and has inspired me to continue leading a fulfilling, active, and healthy lifestyle.  Playing sports has also provided me with some of my fondest memories growing up in New York City. 

I would greatly appreciate it if you could help support this initiative by donating through this fundraising page.  You can also read and learn more about Sports for Youth by watching the short video!  Your support will carry me through my goal of 26.2 and will also help countless children reach their sports goals as well!

Thank you and much love!

Risa
