welcome to my fundraiser page. As you already know, I will be running the NYC marathon on Nov 2. Although I have never been a charity runner (nor finished a marathon), Morgan Stanley is well known for its charity work and I would like to contribute to this culture while running my 26 miles of joy in the Big Apple.
Giving back to our society and making the world a better place attracts great talents and young professionals who are not afraid to think differently. I truly believe that supporting youth is the key to making all our goals happen. It is in this spirit that I would like to raise awareness of the wonderful programs run by the Salvation Army, where I was a volunteer guitar teacher for 3 years. Just one block away from 1585, their Times sq location offers various after-school youth programs, including dance and music classes to elementary school age children as well as one-on-one tutoring and homework support.
Please donate any amount you feel appropriate to Salvation Army and help them to continue to provide after school programs to those in need.
