Alex Getelman is a New York University graduate and founder of Milestone Building Ventures, a project management and consulting firm. As an avid runner and supporter of charities, Alex Getelman combines his two passions through his involvement with the Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center Run for Teens' team at the New York City Marathon.
The Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center has organized a competing New York City Marathon team for the past seven years, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars to support youth access to free, comprehensive primary care and other health services. Last year's team of 15 runners raised more than $80,000, while this year's group has raised over $45,000. The 2016 New York City Marathon was held Nov. 6 and, to date, more than $20 million has been raised by thousands of teams.
Team members who raised a minimum of $3,500 received automatic entry into the marathon as well as a team running shirt. Every $1,000 raised by members of The Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center team covers a full year of all-inclusive health services for young people ages 10-24.
