New Year’s Resolutions are so last month right? Not necessarily true. February 2, 2011 marked the beginning of the Chinese New Year, a second chance to make good on those resolutions if your willpower is fading fast or already gone. Want to start the Year of the Rabbit out right?
A popular resolution according to the US government’s website is to volunteer, to do some good for your community or a worthy cause. If this was one of your resolutions this year, here are two options that can help you to fulfill those goals if you go to Rider or live in the Mercer County area. Both are one day events that require no commitment beyond some fundraising and actually attending the event.
Walk n’ Roll
Enable, Inc. is a Princeton-based non-profit that assists people with disabilities in central New Jersey. The organization does this by providing transportation, helping families to find suitable housing, etc. Annually they hold a fundraiser called a “Walk ‘n Roll”, a walkathon held this year at PEAC Health & Fitness, a Ewing health club. It is in its 3rd year. The event is February 27, 2012, but registrations before February 11 online or February 15 via mail are free. Afterwards to the day of the event it is $15.
It is an indoor event, so the weather is no concern. The date is a Sunday afternoon, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. when there are no classes for undergraduate students. Additionally Rider’s Dance Team is performing there, so there will plenty of Rider students present already.
Another fundraising event in its 3rd year is Relay for Life of Rider University, also known as the Rider Relay. The event supports the American Cancer Society, a national charity that fights against cancer, a disease that affects millions of people throughout the world.
How do you show your support for good causes?
