Please donate to the victims of Sandy! See more
While I worked tirelessly to train for the NYC Marathon, and raised over $5,000 for cancer-related causes for Team Continuum, it was unquestionably the right decision to cancel the event. My family's own plight, still without power, is nothing compared to the loss of homes and life through our region. With that in mind, I have decided to finish what I started by running the Philadelphia Marathon on Nevember 18th while dedicating my run to New York City and those victims suffering From Sandy's wrath. Although I am running the Philly Marathon for another cancer related charity (which I have personally donated), my heart wishes there was also a running team focused on raising money for the Sandy victims. As such, have created my own separate fundraising campaign. In honor of the 26.2 miles, I am encouraging everyone to donate $26.20 to Hurricane Sandy Relief, administered by the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City. Good luck to everyone in the tri-state area - wishing you all a safe and speedy recovery to normalcy.
