To my family & friends,
I have been given the great opportunity to run the NYC Marathon this year, on November 1, 2015 under The National Kidney Foundation. This is a dream come true, and such an important race for me to run, as I'm representing my brother Danny and my father Charles Lane. Danny, who lived most of his life with diabetes, underwent dialysis, and finally recieved a kidney from my father. He unfortunately passed at an early age from kidney disease, a year and a half, after his transplant. My father who graciously donated one of his kidneys to Danny, is now on dialysis himself, twice a week at 80 years old. He has run many marathons in the past, and was the person who got me started running, back in 1981.
So you see how important this race is to me. I am proud to be running for them, and to those who cannot run, to be a part of this team, and to support this organization. My goal is to raise at least the $2,500 needed for me to enter this race. Please consider joining this fundraiser, benefiting the research needed to fight kidney disease, promoting organ donation, and to support The National Kidney Foundation.....any amount would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much,
2015 TCS NYC Marathon
GO Team Kidney!!! :-)
