I am raising money for the Mount Sinai Hospitals Neo-Intensive Care Unit (NICU) facility to build private rooms where new mommies can remain overnight when their children are born too premature to leave the hospital. My friend's daughter, Andi, was born 10 weeks early weighing just over 2 pounds. Andi lived in the NICU facility for 3 months while her mom was unable to stay overnight with her.
TEAM ANDI has been an Official Charity Partner of the TCS NYC Marathon for the past 5 years. TEAM ANDI runners support Mount Sinai Hospitals NICU. Mount Sinai Hospital sits on mile 23 of the TCS NYC Marathon course, at the peak of 5th Avenues hill before entering Central Park. Three floors up, the littlest and weakest athletes are fighting for survival while we runners are running to finish our marathon. There is always a large TEAM ANDI cheering section in front of the hospital filled with doctors and nurses in their scrubs ringing TEAM ANDI cow bells, T-shirts, hats and signs.
The Mount Sinai Health System relies on community support to help make possible our essential work of outstanding clinical care, innovative research initiatives and more. Thank you in advance for your support of my fundraiser. Please make your donations right on this page or make your check payable to TEAM ANDI and send it to me at my office and i will make sure it gets where it needs to go. Thanks.
