RESCHEDULED and back at last
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in a time of comfort and convienence. More importantly, it's where he stands during a time of crisis.
The Coney Island Sports Foundation has sponsored and coordinated several special events within our community. During the past several years we have been committed on providing financial resources to many worthy charity organizations.
In kind, we would like to thanks all of our private and corporate sponsors. It has elevated our organization in the creation of our Third Annual Brooklyn Triple Crown in 2011 and The Runners Ball. Our foundation underwrites the entire cost of this unique and one of a kind sort after New York City's best road races and banquet.
In addition we would continue to support and provide funds to the students at Our Lady of Grace Parochial School and Prospect Park Youth Track Club. Our Foundation will continue providing financial support to several worthy local community special event programs and Scholarship Races. Such as The Sgt. Doreen Scrimenti Run, The P.O. Christopher Hoban Run and Kenneth Dolan Memorial 5k Run. We are proud sponsors of the Prospect Park Youth Track Club.
This years Brooklyn Triple Crown will transfer the "Runners Cup". Top Male/Female overall Open and Master teams will be crowned NYC 2012 Champions. The Runners Cup a specially designed and engrave trophy with your running clubs inscribed as "NYC Club Champions.
The foundations founder Edwin Cosme will join forces with Latino Justice in advocating in addressing several, social employment, educational, economic and civil rights issues. In doing so we wish that opportunity and prosperity will come to all. "When power leads a man toward arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitation. When power narrows the area of mans concern, poetry remind him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.
