TEAM CMOM Will Bring Therapeutic Art Workshops To Children Undergoing Cancer Treatment At Memorial Sloane Kettering – Donate Today!

CMOM has been chosen for the fourth year in a row by New York Road Runners to be an official participating charity at the ING NYC Marathon. In 2011, Team CMOM raised almost $18,000 in support of our mission to educate and inspire children and families from New York City and beyond. This year, CMOM Board Member Mark Adkins will be holding the CMOM banner and running the famous race to raise funds specifically for his favorite CMOM outreach program: Hospital Arts Outreach at Memorial Sloane-Kettering. 

“This program provides weekly art workshops — known in the Hospital as "CMOM Day" — for children undergoing cancer treatments. The total annual cost to fund this program is $7000, and so my marathon fundraising goal is to pay for the entire program for one year!”– Mark

YOU can support the children at Memorial Sloane-Kettering and become an important player in the ING New York City Marathon without even breaking a sweat! Help Mark achieve his dream — and make a difference to the lives of children in great need.
