BENEFITING: Food Bank For New York City
EVENT DATE: Nov 10, 2012
Mileage Tracker: 26
As you know, I was planning to run the New York City Marathon on Sunday November 4th, but Superstorm Sandy so devastated the City that the event had to be cancelled. Spending the weekend there, I saw first-hand what dire straits it left much of the City in, particularly in Staten Island and Brooklyn where fires and flooding claimed many homes and even lives.
I have decided to run the Santa Barbara International Marathon this Saturday November 11th to honor and raise money for the millions of people affected by Sandy in New York and surrounding areas. I selected the Food Bank for New York City charity's Superstorm Sandy Emergency Response as the recipient for any funds I raise. (The Food Bank receives an A+ rating from the third-party charity rating site charitywatch.org and is one of the leading responders to the Sandy crisis. https://secure3.convio.net/fbnyc/site/Donation2?idb=1474389737&df_id=2781&2781;.donation=form1)
Please help me support NYC today!
P.S. Your donation will go directly to the Food Bank and is tax-deductible - you will receive a receipt via e-mail.
