Join the Cause: CP Nassau 5K Run/Walk to Benefit Theresa’s Fun Place!

Theresa’s Fun Place is a playground and park at the Children’s Learning Center on the campus of CP Nassau in Roosevelt, NY.

In 2004, the Theresa Foundation provided major funding for the renovation and revitalization of the playground, which was then named Theresa’s Fun Place in memory of my daughter, Theresa.

Over 250 students at the Children’s Learning Center, enjoy this fully adapted playground summer, fall and spring.

Time has taken its toll and the playground is in need of repair and refurbishing. The estimated cost of renovations is over $500,000. Over the past 2 years, the Theresa Foundation has given $140,000 towards this project.

On Sunday, November 5th, CP Nassau is holding a 5K Run/Walk/Roll/Stroll. My team, TEAM RUSSO, has committed to raising funds for this event. So far, the walk has raised over $30,000 against the goal of $50,000!

Help Team Russo reach its goal!!!

I am asking for you to please, consider a donation to this wonderful cause. No donation is too small (or big!) Every little bit helps.

Below is the link to our team page, please scroll down and sponsor one of the team members.


All funds raised from this 5K will go to CP Nassau’s playground project first until the project is covered.

Any balance will benefit the MOVE (Mobility Opportunities Via Education) program.

I am pleased to announce the renovations have already begun, but there is still more to do.
