Host Families Needed for Fresh Air Kids for the summer.

The New York City Half Marathon is done but the work of The Fresh Air Fund for this summer is just beginning. The Fresh Air Fund is in need of host families for this summer. I wrote earlier in February that the Fresh Air Fund raises money through running teams in the New York area. It is a great cause and gives children two weeks in their lives that stay with them for a lifetime. Almost two-thirds of the kids are re-invited to stay with Host Families after the initial visit. If you live in the 13 northeastern states or Canada, please consider opening your home to be a Host Family.

It's a great way to give something back to what running has given you. For more information go to
You can also email or call (212) 897-8890 for more information. Your efforts can help a child have an experience that will change their life!
