The success of the Miami 2 NYC Challenge hinges on three main areas of preparation between now and the launch date on May 1: the boat, training, and fundraising. All three are going well but the most exciting for me and ultimately the most important is the progress with fundraising. I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the support expressed by the businesses who have sponsored my row. They include the Maple Guild, the Amherst BID, Wright Builders, and Berkshire Design Group. Their sponsorship plus the contributions from individuals puts the Miami 2 NYC Challenge at over $41,000!! I invite your support of the Miami 2 NYC Challenge which will provide critical funding for the construction of the JPMHC and for accessible and affordable health care in our community. Thank you!
