1/2 Marathon Fundraiser

GHN friends Cara Pasternak and Sara Granata will participate in the NYC Lives half-marathon on Sunday, September 11, 2022 to raise funds for GHN’s Youth Advocacy and Autism programs. “The reason that we chose to work with GHN, is not only because we have been familiar with GHN for a few years now,” says Cara, “but also because we love what they do as a whole. There is no network out there like GHN. The focus for bettering kids, near and far, is super-influential to us, especially with us being young adults.”

Cara, a Client Services Associate at Bleakely Financial, enjoys spending time with loved ones, traveling, and working out. Sara, a former assistant interior designer at Arhaus, loves traveling, cooking, helping people in need, and volunteering at an animal shelter. Both have never done a marathon, but were inspired to run after a few of their friends ran the NYC Marathon in November 2021. When they were signing up, they thought – “we should make this into a purpose, not only to help motivate us more, but to give back somehow. GHN instantly came to mind!”
