Update on Sponsored Walk from Long Island to New York City

Smitha and Beatrice walking to the UN building in New York

Smitha, Des and Beatrice on the journey



Dear Friends & Family,

We did it! Beatrice, Des and I set out on Saturday from Andrew’s first home in Mineola and walked over 6 hours to the UN Headquarters in New York City. It turned out to be a beautiful day, aptly so to honor a beautiful man. As with many events that have taken place since January 12, 2010, Andrew was with us in spirit, guiding us to our finish line.

The most rewarding part of this experience is knowing I have done a small part to contribute to the amazing work done by the Andrew Grene Foundation. Through your donations, many in Haiti will continue to see improvements; your money will go to helping children get an education in the poorest slum of Port-au-Prince, and women sustain their families through microfinance loans.

I can’t thank you all enough for your encouragement, support and generosity. All the best for a peaceful new year.



AGF would like to congratulate Smitha, Beatrice and Des on completing their marathon walk in the winter sunshine on Saturday Dec 3rd. If you would like to make a donation please click below.
