BENEFITING: YMCA of Greater New York
ORGANIZER: YMCA of Greater New York
I go to the YMCA on 135th St. in Harlem almost every day with my son. While there, I dodge through hordes of kids doing awesome activities while my son tumbles, swims, and plays with their amazing staff and educators.
I want to do something to support this place that is so important to the children and families in this neighborhood!
In that spirit, I am honored to be running in the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon as a member of Team YMCA to raise funds for the YMCA of Greater New York!
Whether you live in the Greater New York area or not, there is a good chance that you have benefitted from programs run by the YMCA. Contributions to the YMCA ensure that no child or family is turned away from life-enhancing programs because of an inability to pay. Each year, the YMCA of Greater New York provides financial assistance to tens of thousands of local youth and families in need.
Did I mention this will be my first marathon? This is going to be fun!
Thank you for considering to support me in raising money for the YMCA!
