In 2010 I joined the NYCAAA

I was volunteering with the NYCAAA before I actually joined the organization, since Ken was already a member of the alumni association ,

I would sometimes volunteer with him.

I volunteered with the NYC Road Runners, Achilles International, and at the National leadership conferences in Arizona and in Kansas City

Missouri ,Where We helped to clear a wooded area to create a soccer field for the children.

Prior to joining the NYCAAA, I also volunteered at God's Love We Deliver, and at Tavern on the Green helping to prepare dinner for the

runners of the NYC Marathon.

to quote Shirley Chisholm "Service is the Rent you pay for room on this earth."
