BENEFITING: YMCA of Greater New York
ORGANIZER: YMCA of Greater New York
The YMCA has always been a part of my life. I learned how to swim at the Y, be a part of a team, manage my time, and become a leader. The Y was a constant in my youth; coaching at the Y helped me make ends meet in graduate school; and as an adult, I now serve on the Board of the Vanderbilt Y.
I want to fundraise through the marathon to make sure kids like me have the opportunity to learn important life skills at the Y.
Contributions to the YMCA ensures 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. These requests are now rising to unprecedented levels.
By supporting the YMCA , you are promoting the healthy development of children and families in New York City.
