Hello friends and family :) I am running the 2021 New York Marathon on behalf of the Foundling.
The Foundling is one of New York City's largest providers of foster care services. The organization places children and youth in homes with caring and supportive foster parents. Additionally, they provide supportive services such as medical/mental health services, employment assistance and educational services. During Covid, they were able to distribute remote learning materials such as Chromebooks and Mifi devices as well as provide telehealth sessions to those in need.
I have been an active member of the Junior Board since 2018 as the Foundling's vision is very inspiring to me. I was incredibly fortunate to grow up with a loving, supportive family with ample access to physical and mental health. Life in New York can be incredibly difficult to navigate without the right resources- even more so for children without parental support.
I have made donations every year and this year I am personally pledging $1,500 to the foundation. Any donation size would be greatly appreciated and certainly go a long way in making a difference in the life of a child within the foster system.
