Our Team Peri runners participate in marathons all around the country. Several of our team members run, walk, and crawl in the TCS New York City Marathon and the Lifetime Miami Marathon/Half Marathon alongside our two co-captains, Lori and Peri Finkelstein.
The members of Team Peri have individually raised thousands of dollars throughout our ten years in existence. With the help of our captains, we have been able to raise over $800,000 for Chai Lifeline and have gained national media coverage.
Our fundraising efforts have been recognized by Skeery Jones from The Elvis Duran and The Morning Show, Pete & Haley Alonso at The Alonso Foundation, former MLB player, current Sports Analyst on the MLB Network, baseball trainer, pitching coach of the Staten Island FerryHawks, and co-host of the NY Post’s Amazin’ But True podcast, Nelson Figueroa, former HQ Trivia host, host of Wild Cards on NTWRK, co-host of the Business Casual podcast, and owner of Quiz Daddy’s Closet, Scott Rogowsky, Christopher Ulmer from Special Books by Special Kids, CHEVAL, and Conrad Clevlen. Nelson, Scott, Chris Ulmer, CHEVAL, and Conrad are proud members of Team Peri and have participated in the Miami Half Marathon.
All of the members of Team Peri come from diverse backgrounds and come together to reach a common goal, to help families all around the United States break barriers that come into their lives.
