I'm psyched to be running my first marathon on Sunday November 1. It's something I have to do for myself, and at the same time I am proud to be able to fund raise for Citymeals-On-Wheels. As a New Yorker whose family has been living here for over 125 years I realize the need to feed and care for the home bound elderly. People can easily be forgotten in such a big city and helping to feed and visit these elderly also strengthens the social face and morality of this great world city.
Please help me raise money for this noble cause. Any and all contributions via my fundraising page is greatly appreciated. No contribution is too large or too small. Referrals to other potential donners is also greatly appreciated, and would help me attain my goal of $3,000- before Marathon day. Your support will also encourage me during my 26.2 mile Marathon run through the streets of NYC. I've been seriously training for it since last October, but clearly don't see this Marathon as a speed or time competition for me. I see it as my way of reminding myself that when I wish to set myself a task, no matter how grueling and uncomfortable it may be, that with my signature determination, the faith I have in my abilities, and the correct preparation, my enthusiasm will determine a successful outcome.
Thank you all for your help in helping me help others!
Citymeals-On-Wheels (citymeals.org) has been feeding and caring for older New Yorkers since 1981, and provides a continuous lifeline of nutritious food and human company to the city’s homebound elderly. Citymeals works with community-based meal centers to deliver over 2 million weekend, holiday and emergency meals to 18,000 of our frail aged neighbors. Last year, nearly 19,000 volunteers provided over 67,000 hours of service.
Citymeals relies on the generosity of sponsors, its Board of Directors, the City of New York and other designated gifts to cover administrative costs. This ensures that 100% of all public donations go directly to the preparation and delivery of meals.
