BENEFITING: American Red Cross
ORGANIZER: American Red Cross Greater New York Region
EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2014
This November, my brother and I are reuniting this November to tackle the New York Marathon once more. As I've done in past years, I am running in support of the essential work of the New York chapter of the American Red Cross.
Two years after Hurricane Sandy devastated people across the New York/New Jersey area, the Red Cross has helped tens of thousands of people recover with financial assistance, housing-related expenses and grants to nonprofit groups serving residents of storm-damaged communities, putting 99% of the $311.5 million donated to work. And while Sandy may have gotten the most press, disasters on a smaller but personal scale impact families across our region who in turn rely on the Red Cross's invaluable assistance.
Thank you all for your continued support of my crazy "hobby" and the organizations that I care about. Karl and I hope to see you out there on race day.
