Dear Fellow Round Tablers
Round Table New York has chosen to partner with NYRR Team for Kids to run the 2013 ING New York City Marathon and support NYRR Youth and Community Services in the fight against childhood obesity.
Team for Kids is a committed group of runners who add meaning to their miles by raising funds that fuel NYRR youth programs for under-served children in New York City, all 50 states, and parts of Africa and India. While training for the ING New York City Marathon, TFK members devote themselves to helping spread the joys of running to our nation’s neediest schools and communities.
Funds raised by Team for Kids members support NYRR Youth and Community Services. Established in 1998, NYRR youth services strive to motivate kids in under-served communities to live a healthy, active lifestyle. You can read more information about NYRR Youth and Community Services on the Team for Kids website here: RoundTableTeam
