That's the spirit!
Running 26 miles may seem hard...but what is really hard are the challenges and struggles that Children of Bellevue (COB) faces every day. My wife Benjamine and I first learned about COB when we missed a school coat drive and went to Bellevue to donate some old clothes. What we saw there was heartbreaking: how a city as wealthy and powerful as New York has a hospital that needs so much help to take care of its children.
Benji and I took their mission to heart. Benji joined COB's board, and last year I decided to participate in the inaugural COB NYC Marathon Team. Our team of 4 runners was able to raise $23,880, of which I accounted for $4,770. It was a great sum that strengthened CoB’s ability to help unprivileged children overcome all sorts of physical and psychological challenges they face daily.
This year we are upping the stakes: we are 8 runners and our goal is to raise $40,000. My personal goal is to raise $ 7,000. Help me help COB!
I'm counting on you, even with the smallest donation, and if you are around New York on November 5th come cheer for the COB team somewhere in the dark and cold First Avenue in the 100's (aka "The Wall").
Thank you for your support!
