EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2015
Hi! My wife and I are extremely excited to be running the NYC marathon this coming November on behalf of HRC. Having the opportunity to run is important to us for a couple of reasons. Those who know Dana and I know that we both take pride in running and working out, so going through the training and running together is definitely a "bucket list" experience. More importantly the people that know us best know that sacrificing for others, and being there for our friends and family is the most important thing in the world to us.
A few years back, my younger sister told us she was gay. While this came as a bit of a surprise, it explained a lot about her childhood, as she struggled through parts of her life with depression. Having seen her grow up, come out, and go through college, we know all to well the struggle that she went through in not feeling comfortable living her life being who she really was. While there have been great strides made recently for the LGBT community, having the chance to raise money and awareness so that others don't have to go though what she went through in the future is what makes us most excited about running in the fall.
Please support, and we'll do all we can to run our best, and raise as much awareness as possible!
