Patriot Hills of NY

Patriot Hills of New York, Inc.

Patriot Hills of New York, a not-for-profit organization, was developed as a way to demonstrate our appreciation to the men and women who courageously fight for the freedoms we all share. Our organization is committed to developing a community-based resource and outreach center in New York, designated specifically for the needs of returning combat veterans and their families. Our primary objective is to provide direct and effective support to veterans and their families through medical, metal health and therapeutic healing referrals and services in a customized facility that enables them to re-connect, transition, and reintegrate back from military service. Our veterans and their families did their part... they gave of themselves for us. It’s our turn to give back to them.

Girls On The Run

Girls on the Run Capital Region

Empower a Girl – Change the World. What does Girls on the Run do? One girl put it this way, "I learned that I am the boss of my brain." Transforming girls into joyful, healthy and confident young women is what Girls on the Run is all about. How do we do it? We use running and other physical activities to teach essential life skills and core values for living an emotionally healthy and physically active lifestyle for girls in grades 3 through 8 in the Capital Region. The 10-week program culminates in teams’ participation in a 5K event and a community impact project of their choosing. We believe that every girl can embrace who she is, can define who she wants to be, can rise to any challenge, can change the world. Can.
