Christine Giudice's Team Sparrow Takes On Nashville 2019 Fundraiser
When my sister Jenny and I decided to embark on this half marathon fundraising challenge, I was at a loss for words in order to find a way to express my thoughts and feelings about the journey our family is going through. I was recently introduced to The Sparrow's Nest founder and the amazing group of people who every single day help others and live life by paying it forward. The Sparrow's Nest of the Hudson Valley provides two meals once a week to the families of caregivers and children diagnosed with any type of cancer. My niece Emma was one of the first families of a child diagnosed with cancer to receive help from this organization. The mission of The Sparrow's Nest and the sense of community the organization has is inspiring! It is impossible to express the gratitude and thanks for all that they do for families battling cancer. It will be an honor to run/walk in this race in order to help them to raise funds to continue their amazing work. Any donation would be appreciated. Thank you in advance for your help, love and support.

I dedicate this run/walk to my goddaughter and niece Emma Christine Levine. The most amazing and inspirational person in my life. For her strength, courage and zest for life even when faced with the daily struggle to survive and endure her battle with cancer. Emma has such a bright beautiful soul that wraps everyone she encounters with love and happiness. I have no doubt in my mind that she will beat cancer once and for all and spend the rest of her life as an inspiration for people to emulate.

To my Emma Doodle, your Aunt Tee loves you! I am proud of you everyday and you are truly a gift in my life! #warriorprincessemma

Team Sparrow takes on the Nashville Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon April, 2019.

Your thoughtful donation today means the world to a family in need. It means a sick mom or dad can get extra sleep. It means a child can have a healthy meal while the family focuses on getting a loved one healthier. It means a grocery bill can be cut in half while a family’s expenses increase on copays and out of pocket medical expenses. It means more than you can imagine. Sparrow’s Nest provides two, homemade meals each week to families facing a cancer diagnosis. Your fundraising efforts will help Sparrow’s Nest expand their services further into New York. Our mission is cooking and delivering meals to families facing a cancer diagnosis in Dutchess County and parts of Ulster, Orange and Putnam.

Your donor dollars are 100% tax deductible and stay in our community, feeding your neighbors. Donations can also be mailed to: Sparrow’s Nest Charity, 946 Route 376, Suite 7, Wappingers Falls, NY 12590
