Dear Friends and Family,
As most of you know, I ran...and finished(!) the Fairfield Half Marathon in June. I thought that by crossing the finish line I would be done....Done with training and working toward a goal, that at 51, I never thought I would reach. I've since realized (with much insight from those with far more experience than me) that life is a journey...that each goal set is just a hurdle along that journey. I'm ready for the next hurdle. I've decided to run the 2013 NYC Half with Team for Kids and I am asking for your support of their inspiring mission. Team for Kids is a team of volunteers who raise funds for critical services provided by New York Road Runners Youth Programs. These programs combat childhood obesity and empower youth development via running and character-building programs in low-income schools and community centers throughout the country, and in Africa.
Making a donation is easy! You can click on the Donate button on this page to give through my secure fundraising site. You can also find information there about where to write a check, or how to get your company to match your gift! All contributions are tax-deductible.
Your giving helps New York Road Runners Youth Programs to:
Serve over 100,000 children in more than 400 schools and community centers with FREE programs.
Reach children of all fitness levels and athleticism, with a heightened focus on reaching out-of-shape and overweight kids with little or no athletic experience.
Prevent overweight or obese children from eventually suffering heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and other chronic illnesses that lead to health-care costs in excess of $100 billion annually.
Whether you are a runner, have worked with children, or have kids yourself, I hope you will join me to further this great cause!
See you at the finish line!
Mary
