We’re hoping to have our biggest team yet this year and have some real competitors in the running divisions (no pressure, guys). The event is truly family friendly, with programs for children 2 and up and walkers/runners of ALL ages. There’s also a Kid’s Zone with Play Area, complete with face painting, sand art, dancing, live music, and games. photo (2)

We have not yet reached our goal of $1,000 but I know we will. Don’t have a dollar to spare? Well wishes, happy thoughts and prayers are also all appreciated :)

There’s Only 1 Week Left And We Haven’t Reached Our Goal – Please Support The Foorce In The Central Park Challenge (June 2nd)

The Foorce will be participating in the 2012 YAI Central Park Challenge for our third consecutive year next Saturday, June 2nd, and we still need your help to reach our goal!
—————————————-

We’ve been fortunate to have a great support system for James here in the city. We have been truly inspired by the work of the YAI Network and the difference they make in the lives of children and adults with developmental disabilities each day. Children and adults with disabilities rely on the YAI Network for basic services such as preschools, health care, housing, job training and more in order to reach their fullest potential and be active members of our community. We have also had a wonderful experience dealing personally with them as we work on finding services for James.

—————————————

Please consider:
1) by joining our team – anyone is welcome, and when I say anyone I mean any age, ability, friends, family and strangers alike. To join, go to http://support.yai.org/goto/thefoorcereturns and click on the button that says “join team.”
2) by donating to our team – ANY amount is greatly appreciated by us and by the YAI. To donate to our team, please go to http://support.yai.org/goto/thefoorcereturns and click on “Support the Foorce!”

The Top Ten Reasons To Join The Foorce 2012:

We hope to have our biggest team yet this year. Remember that this event is incredibly family friendly – even my 1 and 3 year old will be racing in events for kids during the day! Each year we have so much fun and love meeting new people – feel free to invite your own family and friends to join us as well!
Again, if you are unable to join us but are able to support us please visit our team website – http://support.yai.org/goto/thefoorcereturns – every dollar is appreciated more than you know! Have you found this blog helpful at all? How about my awesome summer guide? Is it worth $1, or $5 to you? Perhaps you would consider donating this amount toward our race efforts next weekend. We have not yet met our goal but I have 100% confidence (okay, 99.999%) – we have never fallen short and I know we won’t this year either.
If you have questions or trouble with the CPC site, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Thank you from all of us for your time, generosity and consideration as we support a cause near and dear to our hearts.
Warmly,
The Searfoorce Family
