My dream is to run NY:). I've been friends with sports all my life, mainly due to my father's teachings, who played basketball all his life.
Convinced by a close friend about 5 years ago, I have started my running saga. Step by step, I caught the vibe and became addicted to it, starting a new lifestyle. Luckily, I have learnt from good friends & my coach about running, nutrition, preparation. After finishing my first full marathon - Barcelona Marathon 2015 - a great experience I will never forget - I decided to run NY marathon. Since I can run, I can run for others less fortunate as well. I choose CCBF. I believe in the good their are doing for children and their families.

Funds raised through the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon will enable CCBF to provide critical medication, chemotherapy and other life-saving treatments to children with cancer and blood diseases treated at the Division of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology of New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medicine.
CCBF has helped the Division grow into one of the top centers of its kind, treating more than 500 children in over 8,000 clinic visits each year. With CCBF support, the Division sponsors the nation’s largest thalassemia clinic, most extensive hemophilia center in metropolitan New York, and the country’s largest center for research and care for Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP). Every day, due in large part to the funds raised through CCBF, many children who otherwise would not be able to afford care are treated and cured.
