Hi

I'm running the 2019 New York City Marathon for Extreme Kids and Crew, a non-profit in NYC.  I am proud to be one of the Board of Directors of this amazing organization :-)

We believes that every child has the right to play and make art as it holds meaning to them, that every family has the right to accurate information and supports, and every employee has the right to a workplace that embraces a culture of diversity and inclusion.

Following is our Mission and Vision Statements:

  • Mission: At Extreme Kids & Crew, we cultivate welcoming, accessible spaces where kids with disabilities and their people create a supportive community through the arts, play and conversation.
  • Vision: Extreme Kids & Crew seeks to show people that disability is not to be feared, pitied or mindlessly exalted, but understood to be an inherent part of life.  We will achieve this by establishing and maintaining creative community centers for the disability community, including a cultural hub that will serve to connect and celebrate people of all ages with all different sorts of disabilities.

We works to achieve this vision through the operation of two sensory gyms and play spaces.  Partnered with two (2) Title 1 funded schools to help provide opportunities to students with disabilities that might not otherwise have access to these resources.  We want to have play spaces at each of the five (5) boroughs in NYC!

Additionally, we open these spaces to the public as an additional avenue for after school and weekend programs serving children from all over the city.

Please donate anything you can for a great cause! 100% of your contribution goes to supporting arts and play programs for children with disabilities and their families. 

Where the fundraising money will go?

  • A year of Music Programming = $5,000
  • Summer Camp for 1 child (6-weeks) = $3,000
  • Art Classes for a year for 1 child = $1,000
  • One week of Open Play during a school holiday = $500
  • Art Supplies for a monthly Art Event = $100
  • Two weeks’ worth of snacks for 10 kids at After-School Programs = $50

This is an amazing cause and it’s my privileged to be a part of this great organization. 

I'm really excited to be sharing this with all of you :-)

Thank you for your time and consideration!

Regards,
Board of Directors
