I am a very passionate runner myself so it gives me great pleasure to present to you a unique fund raising event. By running this year’s New York City Half-Marathon on August 16th you could also help Fresh Air Fund for children. Since 1877, The Fresh Air Fund, a not-for-profit agency, has provided free summer experiences in the country to more than 1.7 million New York City children from disadvantaged communities. During the last year’s run they raised more than $125,000 which went directly to their free programs.
You can help out either by running for Fresh Air Fund-Racers team or hosting children in your home. Find out more at The Fresh Air Fund web site and go out and do something good for yourself and others.
