I have decided to join the famous New York City Marathon, where the race takes place on the 1st of this upcoming November. It is a really cool setup where we run through the five boroughs of the city (Manhattan, Brroklyn, Queens, Bronx, and the one I've never been to Staten Island) the distance is 42.16 Kilometers (World) 26.2 miles (Americans). Other than the fact that I am kinda crazy, I am mostly worried about the last 0.2 miles not the 26 and whther I'll be able to go through with it or not.
In order for me to run, I joined a charity team in Gilda's Club. This is a great organization that provides FREE support to those who are affected by cancer and their family members. Being one those people myself when my mother was diagnosed with her brain tumor, I know first hand how difficult it is to live with someone you love who is suffering from this horrible disease and coping with the aftermath of their passing. That is why I chose to run with Gilda's Club specifically.
The target I am trying to raise is $3000 (not accounting for inflation) before Oct 23rd in order to garuntee my participation in the race on Nov 1st. I will not get any of your graicously donated money but know that it is going to great cause and that you really are supporting all kinds of people here, because cancer does not discriminate. So trust that your money will go to people who actually need it. Any amount you decide to donate will help.
Thanks a million and stay tuned for photos!
