WHY I'M RUNNING (AGAIN)
Last year I completed the 2015 TCS New York City Marathon with City Harvest. Running as part of the City Harvest team was both physically challenging and incredibly fulfilling. With the generous support of donors, I was able to raise over $5,000 to help feed hungry New Yorkers. Not only was I able to exceed my fundraising goal but I finally achieved my personal goal of running 26.2 miles non-stop. I loved the experience from start to finish so I'm back for round two.
I could not have completed the marathon last year without the unwavering support of friends, family, coworkers, teammates and my coach. This year, I'm aiming high and hope to complete a sub four-hour marathon and to exceed the City Harvest fundraising goal once more. With your help, I'm confident we can achieve these goals together.
Family, friends, co-workers, colleagues, past and present teammates, please support me by making a donation - of any amount - to help me meet my fundraising commitment of $4,000. Believe it or not $4k is enough to rescue and deliver over 15,000 pounds of food that would otherwise go to waste. I hope you will support me and my efforts to fight hunger in New York City.
Thank you for your support of City Harvest and my second marathon. See you on November 6th!
