BENEFITING: Back on My Feet
ORGANIZER: Back on My Feet
EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012
Hi! I’m Karen King and last year I ran my first half marathon to raise money for Back on My Feet. I was pretty sure a half marathon was the most I could do, but apparently all this running has deprived my brain of sufficient oxygen, SO…..This year I’m running my FIRST marathon, the NYC marathon. Back on My Feet is launched their 9th chapter on April 10 in NYC. To show my support for this incredible organization, I decided to sacrifice my time (running 20 miles a week) and my money (I’m paying my roundtrip ticket and hotel) to make my miles count by FUNDRACING the NYC marathon.
