[2/20 – Museum of Natural History, NYC]
On Saturday June 5, join YAI and Broadview Networks for their annual Central Park Challenge. Last year, over 10,000 were involved with volunteering and/or participating in the exciting activities!
Over the course of the day, there are 3K and 5K runs and walks for both children and adults, so you can make the day fun and/or challenging. YAI spokesperson, Sherri Shepard, will be attending the event and continuing her involvement with spreading the word!
The money donated for this event is dispersed amongst various projects that are dedicated to helping those with disabilities and their families. Some of the disabilities that are most recognized through this organization are Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Autism and others that stall learning development for children and adults.
Keep your calendars open for this event – it will be one you don’t want to miss! Visit the website to learn more about YAI,what they’ve done to raise awareness for these issues and how it has made a large impact!
Another kudos is in order! On April 25, my sister, Jessica Levine, ran 13.1 miles in the POURING RAIN! Not only was this her first half marathon, but to successfully complete the run in cold, rainy weather is a huge accomplishment.
This is More Magazine’s 7th year of hosting marathons and half marathons.
