Rebecca joins Team Foundling after recently joining our Junior Board. She’s an avid runner who has run several marathons in the past, and decided to dedicate this year’s race to The Foundling.

 

What motivated you to run for The New York Foundling’s team in the TCS Marathon?

As a new member of the Junior Board, I felt this was an amazing opportunity to meet others and spread awareness for everything that The Foundling does.

Denis lives in Manhattan and first found out about The Foundling through his workplace. Since, he has joined our Junior Board to get more involved in supporting the work of our 30 programs. He’s been running half marathons over the past year to prep for the big race in November. Here, he answers a few questions about why he is running for The Foundling.

 

What motivated you to run for The New York Foundling’s team in the TCS Marathon?

I’ve been living in New York City for nearly 10 years. I’ve enjoyed every moment of it. I’ve had my moments of accomplishment and my moments of defeat. The Marathon has always been a day that I identify with being a New Yorker and the characteristics that New Yorkers possess: determination, curiosity, persistence, and much more. I know one day I will leave New York, and when I do, I want to say that for one day, I ran that city.

 

What makes you passionate about The New York Foundling’s cause?

My family moved to the United States from Bosnia, and when we moved here, we received help along the way. I am grateful for the programs that helped my family get settled and would like to help others have the same opportunities. While The Foundling has a different mission, their values, goals, and initiatives align with those that I was enrolled in. 

 

What are you most looking forward to about this year’s race?

The finish line!

 

Why would you encourage others to support you in this race?

While I’ve always wanted to run the marathon, the fact that I have the opportunity to run it with, and for, such an amazing cause is an honor. The Foundling offers so many wonderful programs for what I believe to be for people that need it the most, children and young adults. When you support me, you support The Foundling.

Our team of runners is ready to run their hearts out in support of The New York Foundling, which reaches 30,000 children, youth, individuals, and families each year through programs in child welfare, behavioral health, juvenile justice, developmental disabilities, and education.

 

For Darwin, one of Team Foundling’s official runners for the 2018 marathon, the mission of The Foundling hits close to home. As a clinical psychotherapist at The New York Foundling’s Brooklyn mental health clinic, Darwin witnesses firsthand the importance behavioral health support makes for families involved in the child welfare system.

 

What motivated you to run for The New York Foundling’s team in the TCS Marathon?

My patients and colleagues have inspired me to run for The New York Foundling’s team. I am inspired by the strengths that children and families in the foster care system have and by the dedication of my colleagues to address complex structural problems.

 

What makes you passionate about The New York Foundling’s cause?

I am passionate about helping children in the foster care system. As a therapist it is heartbreaking to witness the trauma that children and their families in the foster care system have experienced, yet, there is something that keeps them moving forward. It is this force that inspires me to improve myself as a human being.

 

What are you most looking forward to about this year’s race?

I am most looking forward to running with thousands of people from all over the world and feeding off everyone’s positive energy.
