6 months ago, Breezy Point was devastated by Sandy. over 100 homes were lost to fires caused by the storm. For those who don't know, Breezy point is home to many of New York's Finest and Bravest, Many of whom were lost to the WTC attacks in 2001. Now, those families have watched their houses burn to the ground while FDNY and NYPD family members were out helping us in this storm. It is time for us to help them for a change. - The 2012 Marathon was canceled. Given the amount of people suffering around us, it truly felt like the right thing to do. Running has always been about uniting us, and the controversy was turning into something divisive and hurtful. The true lesson in all of this is that we move forward TOGETHER with our heads held high. The Good news is that this fundraising page for all of the people in Breezy Point will be up and running to accept donations throughout 2013. I will be running in the Brookly Half Marathon for this cause on May 18th and then the NY Marathon on November 3rd. I have spent time in Breezy Point over the last few months, trying to help out in any way possible. The resilience of the Breezy Point Community is nothing less than inspiring. These funds are going directly to the local volunteer firehouse with the amazing help of The Fealgood Foundation. again, thank you all so much for your support. Please continue to visit my page. Will continue to post photos of Breezy for you. Breezy Point will come back. It always does.
