On March 18, I will be running in the NYC Half Marathon, a 13.1 mile race that will take me on an exciting journey from New York City's Central Park, through Times Square, and eventually finishing at the South Street Seaport. This race is particularly meaningful for me because three years prior to Race Day, I was in a rehab home in the wake of my fall down a flight of stairs that resulted in two surgeries and kept me from running for months.
More importantly, though, I saw this race as an opportunity to help others by raising funds for a very worthy cause: the American Cancer Society. All too often, we are affected by news that someone whom we know has become a victim of this disease. Myself, I was reminded of the consequences of this disease when one of my favorite baseball players, the Mets' Gary Carter, who led them to their last world championship, passed away from brain cancer earlier this year.
So, please join me in supporting the effort to treat - and hopefully prevent cancer. Any amount you can donate - no matter how small - would be greatly appreciated.
