Now in its sixth year, the New Taste of the Upper West Side festival will benefit the Wellness in the Schools program at the O'Shea School complex and P.S. 87 and the Columbus Avenue Streetscape Project, which aims to spruce up the avenue between West 76th and West 77th streets. The event draws more than 1,500 people each night and is often sold out. "Each year, we try to make the events better than they were the year before, bringing in hot new restaurants and chefs, as well as new entertainment," said BID Executive Director Barbara Adler.

A lifelong athlete with several marathons and triathlons under her belt, including an Ironman distance triathlon, fitness is a personal passion that Nancy brings to her role with WITS and her volunteer work. In 2003, she became a founding board member of Girls on the Run Manhattan (GOTRM), a non-profit organization that uses the power of running to change the way girls see themselves and their opportunities. Nancy also serves on the board of the Friends of Princeton Track. At WITS, Nancy pours her love for running and fitness into the Coach for Kids program, which brings coaches onto the recess yards of public schools to get even the least active kids moving, and to teach important social and behavioral skills such as teamwork, respect, and leadership. "In a nutshell, Nancy gives back and makes a huge difference in the lives of others!"
