I am running the NYC marathon this year to support a friend Amy Kneeper and raise money for a cause that is very close to me...My younger brother and both of my nephews were premature babies and had to spend a considerbale amount of time in the hospital unitl they were healthy enough to go home with their families.
Amy's daughter Andi was born 10 weeks early weighing just over 2 pounds. She lived in Mount Sinai Hospitals NICU facility for almost 3 months. Amy has taken her passion for running and combined it with her gratitude toward Mount Sinai's NICU and created TEAM ANDI. Since staring in 2014, they have built two TEAM ANDI rooms at Mount Sinai NICU (1 West, 1 East) that can hold a family so parents can live and bond with their newborns with the support of the NICU staff
We are grateful for any support you can give and thank you in advance!
