It is really incredible that we have been able to exceed the fund-raising goal of $3,000 by so much. Thank you all so much!  See more

BENEFITING: TEXAS CHILDRENS HOSPITAL

EVENT: 2010 ING New York City Marathon

EVENT DATE: Nov 07, 2010

Darren Ockert

THE STORY:

In March I moved from New York City to Miami and was fortunate enough to move next-door to the very welcoming Greenberg family. I really couldn't have wished for better neighbors. I then learned the very sad news that their youngest son Harry was very sick with osteosarcoma - a very aggressive childhood bone cancer. It's hard to fathom out why such terrible things happen to such good people and unfortunately Harry lost his battle against osteosarcoma on July 10.

Last year I raised nearly $6,000 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society by running the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon in Phoenix, AZ and Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, DC.

This year I am running the New York City Marathon on November 7th in honor of Harry Greenberg and his wonderful family. I am fundraising for the Texas Children's Cancer Center who played a very important role in treating Harry and supporting his family who had to make the long trips to Houston for treatment.

My goal is to raise $3,000 and I hope you can contribute no matter how small a contribution to this very worthwhile charity.

Thank you

Darren
