I could not be more excited to run the NYC Marathon for the Nature Conservancy. The outdoors have always been an important part of my life - from the woodsy trails of Girl Scout camp to the sandy shores of the Great Lakes to the vineyards in the south of France where we spent our honeymoon. All of these places are near and dear to my heart, and I am thrilled to raise money for an organization dedicated to preserving them. Here is one of my favorite quotes to inspire you to give:
"Only when the last tree has died, and the last river has been poisoned, and the last fish has been caught, will we realize that we cannot eat money." - Cree Indian Proverb
So don't eat your money - donate it instead!
