BENEFITING: THE MAYORS FUND TO ADVANCE NEW YORK CITY
The marathon is happening this Sunday. As a runner, city employee and above all a resident of New York City, I spent the night trying to determine if I should defer or not and some of you know this as you woke up to my insomniac texts. All I kept coming back to was that the "show" is going on whether we agree with it or not and whether I run or not. Thus, I have decided I am going to run AND fundraise for the recovery. My race fee may not end up going to the cause, but the money my legs raise will if you support me.
I hope you will join me no matter your thoughts and make something positive come out of the marathon on Sunday. Donate ANY amount you can.
All proceeds will go to the Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City to help support the recovery.
