I am writing this to you asking for your support. As most of you may know, I am running in the NYC Marathon in 2 weeks, which has always been a bucket list item of mine. At the beginning of the year health issues, which were really scary & eye opening at the same time (all is now fine). So I decided that this was going to “be the year I actually do it”.
I got blessed with an opportunity to join the Greater New York Council Marathon Team. As you may likely know, scouting has been a part of my life since I was 7 years old. The program had a huge impact on me, and 3 years ago I became the Scoutmaster of Troop 106. With my amazing team of leaders, we have grown the troop to one of the largest in Queens.
Scouting in NYC touches over 40,000 people, and provides opportunities to many that they couldn’t experience here in the city. I have committed to raising $3,000 to help support scouting in NYC, I have raised $750 so far. The money will go to preserve camps, help under-privileged scouts to fully participate in the program, & much more.
Will you stand with me in helping to fulfill one of my lifelong dreams while helping a program that is dear to the hearts of tens of thousand of New Yorkers?
