Community Service Opportunities for September:

Komen New York City Race for the Cure (5K)                                    www.komennyc.org
In the past, nearly 1,500 breast cancer survivors and 20,000 people in total have poured into New York’s Upper West Side and CentralPark for this
massive benefit. Participants have come from 41 states and six countries to take part to walk or run in support of breast cancer advocacy. Over
the years, it has raised millions, 25% of which goes to national groups, and 75% of which is invested in community programs in the five boroughs,
Long Island and Rockland and Westchester counties. Visit the Komen site to register online or to find out where and when pre-registration takes
place. All registrants receive race bibs, shirts and other goodies. There’s a registration fee, although there are no fund raising minimums. For
complete details, visit Komen’s New York Web site.

New York City Multiple Sclerosis Bike Tour (30, 60 or 100 miles)               www.msnyc.org
This benefit is a truly unique and a great way to tour New York City. On the event day, the city shuts down the Lincoln Tunnel, FDR Drive and
Westside Highway so that participants can support the thousands of New Yorkers living with MS and their families. Registration fees apply, al-
though early registrants receive lower fees. Participants are also asked to make pledges, which differ depending on the length of the ride: 30 miles
(about $50), 60 miles (about $75) or 100 miles (about $100). In previous years, the event has raised over $1 million. For this year’s details, visit the
MS Society’s New York Web site or call 212-463-9791.

Opportunities for Community Service in March:

Pfizer Oncology Colon Cancer Challenge (4-mile run, 1.7-mile walk or half-marathon)
www.coloncancerchallenge.org

Take your pick at this event: you can do a 4-mile run, 1.7-mile walk or (for men only) half-marathon through Central Park. There is a mandatory
registration fee; however, no fund raising minimums apply. About 85% of funds raised are contributed to research and community outreach. Unlike
other Manhattan athletic fund raisers that support New York beneficiaries, the challenge’s proceeds are donated to nationally, and even interna-
tionally focused research. For more information, call 718-430-2600.

Community Service Opportunities for April:

New York City Multiple Sclerosis Walk (2.5, 7.5 or 12.5 miles)                  www.msnyc.org
Check out Manhattan’s South Street Seaport by joining the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s MS Walk. Up to $2.5 million has been raised by
the walk in previous years. About 60% of proceeds to go programs and services in New York’s five boroughs, 40% to national research. Walkers
can choose a 2.5, 7.5 or 12.5 route, and are asked to raise a minimum of about $50. For up-to-date details, visit the Web site or call 212-463-9791.

Parkinson’s Unity Walk (2 miles)                                                               www.unitywalk.org
Since 1994, families, friends, caregivers and major Parkinson’s foundations have gathered each year in Central Park to support of one goal: find a
cure for Parkinson’s disease. Unlike many other New York-based benefits, this event is focused largely on national programs: every donation
goes directly to major U.S. Parkinson’s foundations. Those planning to make a donation or raise money must register. Registration is not required
otherwise. For more information, see the Web site or call 1-866-789-9255.

Community Service Opportunities for June:

American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure NYC to Suburb (15, 32 or 62 miles) www.diabetes.org
This bike ride brings together a community of diabetes sufferers, their friends and family and corporate teams. Cyclists must pay a registration fee
and obtain at least $100 in pledges. For every dollar raised, 80 cents goes toward diabetes research, education and advocacy. For complete
details, visit the Web site or phone 212-878-5900.

Easter Seals' Walk With Me (5K)                                                      www.walkwithme.org
This walk raises money to further the Easter Seals mission: to provide programs and services to children and adults with disabilities and other
special needs, and their families. The event takes place in Riverside Park, along the Hudson River. There are no fund raising minimums or regis-
tration fees.

Hope & Possibility Race (5 miles)                                                  www.achillestrackclub.org
The Achilles Track Club race attracts many New Yorkers trying to qualify for the New York Marathon, as well as club members, wounded war vet-
erans and disabled New York City school kids. About 85% of the adult runners are not disabled, which fits into the club's goal to integrate disabled
and able-bodied athletes. There is a registration fee for adults (typically around $20-30). Children participate for free. The event is not a huge
fundraiser; however, Archilles does use proceeds to bring disabled athletes to the New York marathon and to support club programs and events.
Visit the Web site or call 212-354-0300 for more information.
