With the snow finally melting in New York City, we are thrilled to participate in something as exciting as the 2014 NYC Half Marathon on March 16th. We have six enthusiastic runners this year, each raising a minimum of $1,000 that will go directly to helping children in need of crutches. They have persevered through an extremely cold training season and raised close to $10,000 (and counting). Thanks to them and their supporters, over 1,000 children in impoverished communities across the globe will receive a pair of crutches. This gift will give them the opportunity to go to school, gain access to food and water, and play with their friends.
Our rock-star team this year includes Jennifer and Tom Haskins, Rebecca Culley, Antonia Lewis-Iley, Chelsea Palmer, and Stephanie Lau. Check out what three of them shared with us in anticipation of the half-marathon next week.
We plan to make this an annual fundraising event for the organization. It’s a great way to spread the word about our mission and raise funds for kids in need!
If you’re in NYC on March 16th, get out and cheer on our team! And check back here in a couple weeks for photos and highlights from the run.
