Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
September 15th will mark my third anniversary of participating in Big Brothers Big Sisters of NYC Walk for the Kids! Over the past two and a half years, I have seen the AMAZING impact this mentoring program has on NYC youth and how invaluable a relationship with a positive role model can have on a student. I can tell you first hand - this is a non-profit that WORKS. 97% of Littles in our program graduate high school, compared to 64.2% of general NYC public school students and 95% of our Littles will enroll in college. Additionally, mentoring has been proven to increase self-esteem, enhance social skills, and improve relationship-building skills.
However, none of this could be done without funding raised by annual events such as Walk for the Kids. I will be fundraising to help support this amazing cause, and I am encouraging you to help my fundraising efforts with a donation. Any amount, great or small, allows BBBS of NYC to help under-served children.
Please join me in my efforts to support Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York City!
