Default DMX & DMC Celebrate 'Day Of The Child'

Hip-Hop icon Darryl "DMC" McDaniels of Run-DMC and rapper DMX are among the performers at this year's Day of the Child celebration tomorrow (Nov. 18) at Chelsea Piers in New York.

Presented by New York City’s Administration for Children's Services and Children Uniting Nations, the Day of the Child is described as the community's way of reaching out to at-risk youth in an effort to expose them to mentors who are available to help and guide them.

Mentored children are more likely to find ways of surviving within the community without turning to crime, drugs or gangs.

More than 500 youths will be paired with adult volunteer mentors, while spending the day getting to know each other and exploring what a long-term mentoring relationship might entail.

The goal of the event is to recruit mentors for at-risk youth, including those living in foster care.

Additionally, the celebration will include musical performances from Mario and DJ Miss Saigon and the chance to mingle with celebrity guests, who will participate in games and activities.

Expected to attend are New York City’s Administration for Children's Services Commissioner John Mattingly, New York Liberty point guard Loree Moore and members from World Wrestling Entertainment.

The Day of the Child celebration takes place at at Chelsea Piers, Field House Pier 62.
