Please help me as I run this year's NYC Marathon on November 4, 2012.
I am running on behalf of Team Success Academy Charter Schools. Success Academy runs nine charter schools in Harlem, Bronx and Brooklyn and have had much success since founding in 2006. The Success Academy will teach over 3500 children this school year alone. Please consider sponoring me as I run the NYC Marathon for Team Success Academy. (any amount is deeply appreciated)
This will be my 2nd marathon after running the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington DC, about 20 years ago. I've been running regularly and I have already run the Battle of Brooklyn 10 miler on 8/19, have the NYC Marthon Tune Up 18 miler on 9/23 and the NYC Half Marathon on 10/14 leading to the NYC Marathon on 11/4. Please cheer me on and sponsor me if you can!!
NYC Marathon 2012 or BUST!!!
