I am running both the Chicago and New York City Marathons for the Leary Firefighters Foundation in honor of the 10th anniversary of 9/11. Please help me in reaching my goal by making a donation and asking your friends and family to do the same.
The mission of The Leary Firefighters Foundation is to provide funding and resources for Fire Departments to obtain the best available equipment, training and technology. The Foundation was established in 2000 by actor Denis Leary in response to a tragic fire in Worcester, Massachusetts that claimed the lives of Denis’ cousin, a childhood friend, and four other firefighters.
The Chicago Marathon and The ING New York City Marathon are two of the world’s great road races and I cannot wait to run in the same race with some the world's top professional athletes. Training for two marathons takes a lot of dedication, perseverance, and heart. It will all be worth if I am able to change lives by helping others. What better place to finish it all off by crossing the finish line in Central Park? It is guaranteed to be is one of the great thrills of my lifetime.
