Half the Marathon, Twice the Fun!
Run the NYC Half Marathon with Team OHEL to Benefit OHEL and Camp Kaylie Children
March 19th, 2017 will mark Team OHELâ€™s second annual participation in the United Airlines NYC Half-Marathon as a charity partner. This yearâ€™s team is larger in numbers, Â stronger in fitness, and even more enthused fundraisers â€“ training hard and determined to exceed their physical and charitable goals.
Team OHEL has had great success in the past year with team members having competitive times in the NYC Marathon and Five Boro Bike Tour, all while raising vital funds for OHEL Childrenâ€™s Home and Family Services.
This year, Team OHEL is building on our success with more events to benefit greater numbers of OHELâ€™s children and families.
Tamar Sicklick, founder of Team OHEL and Camp Kaylie Board Member, comments that over the years, Team OHEL has participated in the NYC Marathon, NYC Half, Five Boro Bike Tour, NYC Triathlon, OHEL Xtreme Challenge, and Over the Edge. Â â€śI am looking forward to participating in this yearâ€™s NYC Half Marathon. Â Itâ€™s been an amazing experience as I watch how OHEL is there every hour of the day, doing, working, and helping members in our own community.â€ť
Team OHELâ€™s fundraising from the NYC Half Marathon will support Camp Kaylieâ€™s Scholarship Program and help children with disabilities attend one of the most inclusive camp programs in the country and enjoy a fantastic summer experience. Donations will allow these children to enjoy the same camp experience as typical children.
Joining Team OHEL is a win-win for all â€“ Camp Kaylie campers benefit and YOU benefit by achieving physical accomplishments you never thought possible.Â
