EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I am very proud and honored to run this (my 10th) NYC marathon! This will be the most memorable one for me because I am running it to raise funds for the CJ Foundation while raising awareness about SIDS, Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUID) and Other Sleep-Related Infant Death.
I was happy when my good friend Noel Firth invited me to run with his team. He ran his first marathon last year and I am happy to run with him and the rest of the team this year. Noel has been an active part of the CJ Foundation for many years and I am here to ask all of you to donate whatever you can to help toward a great cause.
This is the 5th year that Team CJ will be participating in the TCS New York City Marathon. Funds raised will support research, education and services for families.
Thanks for your generosity,
