As most of you know I love to run! Being outdoors and breathing in and seeing Gods beauty inspires me. My best friend, Cathy Reid and I have the opportunity to run The New York Half Marathon on March 18. I have chosen to join a team I am very passionate about, Team Christodora. Christodora allows inner city youth the opportunity to learn about the environment and experience nature first hand. Below is a little info on this incredible organization thats been changing lives since 1897:
Christodora’s goal is to build leadership skills and academic success through an awareness and understanding of the natural environment: they do this in public school classrooms, where Environmental Educators teach a customized 7-week environmental science curriculum in weekend urban ecology and community service programs, especially at the New York Botanical Garden and the 85-acre Manice Education Center in a remote corner of the Berkshire Mountains and also with distinguished partner institutions providing opportunities for advanced study and wilderness programs.
Please consider helping me on my 13.1 mile Journey through New York. My goal is to raise $1,000 to help make a differnce the the lives of as many kids as I can.
