Project Renewal Board Leaders Team Up to Run Half Marathon and Raise Funds for Homeless New Yorkers

NewYork-Presbyterian VP Claudia Rosen and Morgan Stanley Executive Director Geoffrey Proulx will be the first Project Renewal Board leadership duo to run the NYC Half on the organization’s behalf

The two leaders of Project Renewal’s Board of Trustees—Chair Claudia Rosen and Vice Chair Geoffrey Proulx—will run in the New York City Half Marathon on March 18, 2018, to raise funds for the organization. Project Renewal, one of the nation’s largest homeless services nonprofits, has provided health care, housing, and job training and placement services to New Yorkers in need for more than 50 years.

Rosen is Vice President for Financial Planning at NewYork-Presbyterian, and Proulx is an Executive Director at Morgan Stanley. Collectively, they have served on Project Renewal’s Board of Trustees for nearly two decades and each has served in their leadership role for the past three and a half years.

All of the funds they raise will support Project Renewal’s pioneering programs, including emergency, transitional, and permanent housing programs throughout the city; substance use disorder treatment; mobile medical vans; an award-winning culinary arts training program; unique services for seniors and for LGBTQI young adults; and much more.

“Running as an official charity partner of the NYC Half is yet another way to raise awareness of Project Renewal,” says Chair Claudia Rosen. “We hope that running as Trustees also shows the passionate commitment our entire Board has for our homeless neighbors and the amazing staff who serve them, and inspires others to get involved.”

“It has been a privilege to serve over the past eight years as a member of Project Renewal’s volunteer Board, and I look forward to spreading the word about Project Renewal and its incredible programs by running in the NYC half marathon this Sunday,” says Vice Chair Geoffrey Proulx.
