This year I will be running the New York City Marathon with Team Catholic Charities on November 1st, 2015. My goal is to raise $3,000 for Catholic Charities and I am writing to ask if I can count on your support.
One of my ultimate goals has been to run the New York City Marathon and experience the 26.2 mile journey throughout the 5 boroughs of this city, which I am proud to call my home. Since being a member of the cross country and track and field teams during high school and college, I have pursued my passion for running, but this is my first marathon. In addition to training for this great race, I will also achieve the fulfillment of giving back to my community through Catholic Charities.
Supporting Catholic Charities New York will ensure that New Yorkers in need receive winter essentials this coming Christmas, that women ages 18-65 receive the skills and training needed to compete in the job market and that low-income children, ages 10-18, receive one-to-one community based mentoring services, supported by family counseling and skill learning programs. All of the proceeds I collect will benefit Grace Institute, a non-profit organization (affiliated with Catholic Charities) which provides tuition-free business skills training and job placement for underserved women.
Thank you in advance for your support!
