Deborah Lastres Fund

I will be running the NYC Marathon on November 4th, raising money in memory of my mother, Deborah Lastres who died of Leukemia in 2002. I will be matching 100% of the donations and all donated money will go directly to the Samuel Field/Bay Terrace Y in Queens, NY.  Our family has spent our entire lives at the Y and I couldn't imagine a better place my mother would have liked to see the funds used for.  I will be directing how the money will be used depending on how much is raised. Potential to have a classroom or playground named in memory of Debbie, or maybe we will help fund programs that feed the homeless or provide help to underprivileged kids. I will keep everyone in loop once we see how much is raised. Please join me in helping our community by making a donation in memory of my mother, Deborah Lastres. 

The Samuel Field/Bay Terrace Y serves over 35,000 residents of Queens and Nassau Counties.  Our mission is to enhance the quality of individual, family and communal life through service to people of all ages, ability levels, and stages of life, regardless of their background and ability to pay. See their website here to learn more about the Y. http://www.sfy.org/ 

Note: All donations go directly to Y, and again I will be matching 100% of the donations.
