Thank you very much for dona…
Thank you very much for donating to the TEAM KORTNEY NYC marathon team in the 2011 ING NYC Marathon. TEAM KORTNEY NYC raised about $50,000 for pediatric brain tumor research, thanks to all of your kind donations. The Kortney Rose Foundation made our largest donation in 2011 of $150,000 to the brain tumor research program at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, bringing our 5 year total donated to $530,000. Thank you all for making this possible. Even if you don't know someone running in the 2012 ING NYC Marathon we would greatly appreciate a donation to our charity to Help Get Brain Tumors OFF Kids' Minds! Brain tumors are the #1 solid cancer cause of death in children. These children need our help! Please donate online at
Please join us at one of our upcoming fundraisers. Mark your calendars for Sunday, August 26 for our 7th annual Kortney's Challenge 2 Mile Fun run/walk at Monmouth Park & the subsequent Day at the Races picnic area event. See our website for details.

Wow!!! Thank you all so much…
Wow!!! Thank you all so much for your FANTASTIC fundraising efforts. Did you see the total???? It's over $50,000. This is truly awesome and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart!! This will make such a huge difference in the research for pediatric brain tumors.

Wishin you all the best on Sunday! As you're coming up to our cheering area 71st and 1st look for a large pink feather flag that says TEAM KORTNEY and that's where we will be. This is assuming the police will allow us to use this flag. We hope so!

All the best! Enjoy the journey! Remember that you are doing something that most people would never try to accomplish. You are among some very special people to run a marathon and then to raise the money that you all did just is the icing on the cake. Everyone who has run NYC says it's the race to run so enjoy!

See you Sunday!
