BENEFITING: Swim Across America, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Nov 07, 2010
I will be running (walking, crawling...) the NYC Marathon this year. I am dedicating my run to Swim Across America ( www.swimacross america.org ). This organization was founded by an inspirational friend and colleague Jeff Keith who has not let the loss of a lower leg to cancer at age 12 keep him from competitive athletics, running across the USA, and spending the past few decades raising over 30 million dollars for cancer research. I serve as a volunteer Board member and am particularly dedicated to assisting former Olympic swimmer and executive director Janel Jorgensen in her quest to further grow the organization and make it one of the country’s premier sports-based cancer charities, supporting reseachers and patients in major cancer centers across the USA.
If so inclined, please help me in my effort to raise funds in support of this charity and all who benefit from it.
