I am running to support the SKIP (Summer Kids Interactive Program) on Long Island. This innovative, non-profit program was developed by Dr. Karen M. Green, and gives elementary children (including MY children!) a variety of experiences involving learning, recreation, arts and crafts, swimming, music and creative expression. It is a wonderfully supportive program that welcomes ALL types of learners and supports families in need. I am proud to be a part of something so special in my own community and I cherish the experience it is giving my children during the summer.
