Impact. It can be physical like the force of a foot on pavement.
Yet, the impact of these runners was felt even deeper in our hearts.
It’s been a little over a month since our very own Team East Side House earned their medals in the TCS New York City Marathon. We can’t thank our marathon runners enough for the time, the dedication and the inspiration they gave freely in their commitment to this fundraising effort for our East Side House programming.
Over the last few months of training, running and fundraising they carried with them the mission of East Side House. With each mile they ran, with each donor they engaged and with each story they told, they were looking to lift the work we do in New York City’s most vulnerable communities and the 10,000 lives we impact.
Their visit to ESH only reinvigorated their commitment to East Side House. On the big day, Sunday November 5th, all of Team East Side House’s hard work narrowed down to 26.2 miles stretched before them through all five boroughs of New York City.
Their fuel? Education, Innovation and Results. Yet, as they rounded mile 23 of the marathon runners received an added boost from our East Side House cheering station.
