[New York] Let The Games Begin!!!, Today was a gorgeous and sunny day when the Harlem Children’s Zone hosted the Summer Games located at 216 Fort Washington Avenue and West 168th street, this event took place on Friday July the twenty sixth of twentieth thirteen.
Some HCZ staff and students arrived on a school bus, while others walked; all of them went upstairs to the third floor to be seated as the HCZ Summer Games were about to start at 10:00am and ending at 4:00pm on the dot. Many of the main events were shown on a large projector screen including the fifty-five meter dash, the shot put, the two-hundred meter dash, the 4x200 meter relay, and the long jump.
The 55 meter dash was for eleven - fifteen year olds who ran so fast at the New Balance Track and Field Center at The Armory; the crowd gave the runners a round of applause. The shot put contest was for the CSO site group and 19 year olds who Threw the heavy ball and had to spin themselves around in circles just to see how to throw it so far and so high. When The shot put athletes were finished it was on to the next event, which was the 200 meter dash for 13 - 15 year old students; and they were running so fast around the track which was splendid indeed. Next it was the long jump for the 11 - 14 and 16 - 18 year old students who ran and jumped as far as possible in the sand. The audience watched it all, and all the while many refreshments were served to each HCZ site, including Learn To Earn, Truce Media, Truce Fitness, Employment and Technology Center, College Success Office, A Cut Above and Promise Academy One.
After all that, the HCZ students and staff from each site group stood for the national anthem, then on to the next event which was the 55 meter dash for the fastest staff member, both men and women.Each runner had to race at his or her own pace to see who could reach the finish line, Each and every last runner had a turn to compete.
Finally comes the best events of the Games: the 11-12, 13-15, & 16-18 year olds competed in the 4x200 meter relay; four students from each site group ran in this event at his or her own pace, From what I saw, the students who won the 4x200 meter relay ran the fastest of all. Just to see who reached the finish line, the winners who earned the Bronze, Gold and Silver medal, were from A Cut Above, Truce Fitness and Promise Academy One.

|HCZ CSO's Nina Sears Chills with her gals Medjhy, Rhema and Cassandra at the Aids Walk event|
By Ryan Ngala
[Central Park, New York] It's a beautiful gorgeous day in central park despite how the weather it is many people from different organizations of teams came here to join the biggest & most crowded event of a lifetime.
At the starting point of the process many of people gather the line to start registering for the event and started to pick and look for their teams while many people started walking I was starting to look for the Alpha Nu Omega Sorority, Inc.- New York Alumni Chapter team as I spotted and found Nina alongside with their friends who their names were Medjhy, Rhema and Cassandra they ate some almonds and drank a bottle of water we took some pictures as we headed our way to the starting line of the aids walk in central park we took plenty of walks as I started to stop for refreshments as some of the volunteers from the aids walk crew gave me two bananas, a bottle of water and a granola box.
After that Nina and her group started walking all the way down to central park and 96th street then all the way down as we continue to walk some more as we listen to One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful" and many others song on the radio as we got all the way to 110th Street and 7th Avenue.
When Nina and her friends left I decided to walk up the block as many people walk I ask 3 people to answer some questions starting with Tico Santigo, Mary Hidajat & Monica Johnson since it is their first time being in the aids walk I started to begin asking.
Ryan Ngala: Why Is It Important to prevent this kind of disease from happening in our body?
Tico Santigo: To stay alive & enjoy life more
Mary Hidajat: Because it's a type of a devasting disease that impacts many lives of people
Ryan Ngala: What should we not do to have the disease from attracting other people?
Tico Santigo: Safe Sex & Be cautious of what you do
Mary Hidajat: Practice Safe Sex
Ryan Ngala: Describe 3 words in what does the aids walk event mean to you?
Tico Santingo: Unity, everybody is together for one reason
Mary Hidajat: Awareness, Inspiring & Community
Monica Johnson: Important, Inspiring & Appreciation
Many people started to walk on the 7th Avenue side on 110th Street then on Manhattan Avenue, Columbus Avenue, Broadway as soon as they get all the way to 110th Street & Riverside Drive so we started walking to stop by and got some snacks once they did that we see some people wearing Aladdin costumes so that the people started to take some pictures with them then we walk back all the way up to 85th Street at Riverside Drive then at West End Av, going to Broadway, Columbus Avenue, Amsterdam Avenue as we got back to the west side at Central Park & 85th Street we walk all the way to 72nd street but we was none done yet after all that walking I still felt like I wanted to go home all the aids walk volunteers kept on cheering and supporting for us no matter how much it takes for us to get into the finish line and there was still one more mile left to go after it was all said and done many people where back at the finish line as they completed a 10 kilometer mile once they deserve a certificate for their completion of the course.
After they finish they were some refreshment for Turkey Hill ice cream of Frozen Yogurt Fudge Ripple as some of the people had all headed home for the day this was a fun day event for me I should say as I went all around through central park and completed my certificate.
