I decided to take on the crazy challenge of running the NYC Marathon this year. And not only am I doing this as a personal goal for myself, but I'm doing it in support of a great organization. Most Valuable Kids!
This organization gives children in NYC the opportunity to see things we sometimes take for granted - sporting events, concerts, cultural events and more. These small events in our lives provides an incredible source of inspiration for children who aren't exposed to them regularly. Who knows what talent awaits us all in these children!
Please help support me in 26.2 miles of fun and the great kids of Most Valuable Kids!!

Live entertainment provides a positive source of inspiration for children in a world where there are many negative alternatives. Most Valuable Kids of Greater New York, Inc. (MVK) brings this inspiration, at no cost, to underserved children in the New York Metropolitan Area. MVK does this by offering children's organizations access to cultural events, professional and collegiate sports and entertainment events through an online ticket donation and reward system. MVK overcomes the financial obstacles associated with attending live events by distributing unused tickets to children who would otherwise not be able to afford to attend. These tickets are distributed to boys and girls, 18 and under, through organizations that focus on children in low-income and underserved households.
Thank you for your support!
