As a 12-year New York City transplant, Geoffroy has always considered Governors Island to be an anchor point through regular visits, tandem bike rides, and taking advantage of the public art, rich history, & incredible views.

More recently, it’s the Island's deep commitment to developing innovative, locally-relevant climate solutions through the new Climate Exchange that make Governors Island a particularly bright spot on the NYC map.

Governors Island holds a special place in Selene's heart as a haven from the urban hustle of New York City. Through volunteering with Earth Matter over the past fifteen years and being a zero-waste-Island volunteer at events like the Jazz Age and the Pride concerts, she's found community and purpose on the island. Whether savoring treats from Fauzia's Heavenly Delights, lounging on the hammocks or soaking in the island's vibrant atmosphere, Governors Island is where she finds joy and relaxation.

Representing the Friends of Governors Island in the NYC Marathon is a chance to give back to this cherished space, ensuring it remains a sanctuary for all who seek solace.

As a lifelong runner, a NYC resident, an avid environmentalist, and a Columbia University Track and Field alumna (Go Lions!), this opportunity presents a culmination of great passions in Alex's life.

By participating in her first-ever marathon this year, Alex not only embarks on a personal challenge to traverse 26.2 miles through the five boroughs, but also becomes a part of a movement that supports the very parks and green spaces that she cherishes!
