USA – NYC - Fresh Air Fund – Half Marathon Race

USA – NYC - Fresh Air Fund – Half Marathon Race
This coming March 21st, the Fresh Air Fund-Racers will take to the streets at the NYC Half-Marathon.
All the money raised will go toward providing New York inner-city children with memorable and enriching summer vacations. I encourage you to join in running this exciting race!


Last year the NYC Half-Marathon was a huge success, raising $125,000 which goes to programs for NYC children.
If you want to run and participate in this Marathon Race below is the link to register.

Know the story of Brandon Mendoza
Brandon Mendoza was just a young child when he first visited the McKnight family in Cape Cod, Massachusetts through The Fresh Air Fund's Friendly Town program.
Little did anyone know that the relationship formed that first summer would blossom into a lifelong friendship.
To this day, the McKnight’s remain a constant source of support and love for Brandon and feel that he is now just another member of the family.

Sounds like a great race to benefit children of NY and, hopefully, the Fresh Air Fund will involve all of the United States one of these days!
