Kristin Runs NYC Marathon ’23 for KultureCity
$0 of $5,000
This year, I will be running my first New York City Marathon with KultureCity, an organization that supports individuals with disabilities by creating sensory accessibility and inclusion for all. I am thrilled to be running my first NYC Marathon, but even more excited to support inclusion for individuals with disabilities in the process.
As a special education teacher, I see the impact that KultureCity has by creating sensory friendly events and opportunities for all individuals to participate in. Many individuals have sensory needs or invisible disabilities, including PTSD, autism, and TBI’s. Many public events may not be conducive for all, and unfortunately some individuals may withdraw from participating. KultureCity works towards ensuring that events are accommodating to all sensory needs by organizing sensory friendly events, training staff on how to make accommodations to events, and educating first responders on how to meet the needs of all. The nonprofit organization builds sensory friendly rooms, sends out mobile sensory friendly rooms for events, and provides sensory kits to individuals in need. By making small changes to events, KultureCity makes big strides towards inclusion for all. It is exciting to see events become more inclusive for all, so that students like mine can be included in all events.
Please join me as I train for the 2023 New York City Marathon by donating to my fundraiser for KultureCity! You can learn more at https://www.kulturecity.org/. Thank you for your support and I hope to see you at the finish line!
