Crossfit Syosset/ Friday, October 6th

Jenn C. is running in an event this weekend, it is a charity event to raise money for a non for profit private school that teaches children whom are undergoing chemo therapy.
A very good cause.
So if you would like to help Jenn reach her goal to help these kids with cancer go to school here is the info to give a little.

To my Family and Friends,

As some of you may know, I am honored to be a part of Team YOLO (You Only Live Once).  Over the past 5 years the team has grown from 3 to 70 members!  We are a  group of Long Island women who raise money for The Morgan Center (TMC).  TMC is a not for profit preschool located in Hicksville for children undergoing chemo therapy treatments.  It happens to be the ONLY free pre-school in the US that is dedicated to educating children who are undergoing cancer treatment.
Visiting TMC makes myself and my teammates aware that tucking our healthy children to sleep at night is a gift.  That our hectic lives full activities are merely recreation.  It makes us thankful for what we have and it empowers us to be strong and give strong.
We will be running the Hoboken City Challenge Race this Saturday, October 7th!   Our goal is to raise $65,000 by the race and we have about $25,000 to go!
Please visit www.yolostrong.com or https://www.crowdrise.com/yolostrong2017/fundraiser/danielletaylor to support our team and find out more information about Team YOLO and TMC.  Also, please feel free to forward or share this information.  All money will pay for children’s tuition and help provide these children (and their parents) with a sense of normalcy, and joy, when things aren’t so normal.
I thank you, my team members thank you, and the staff, parents and children of TMC thank you!
All my best,
Jenn xoxo
