<!--StartFragment-->My father-in-law, Dr. Marvin Jassie, passed away in June 2016 after his bout with pancreatic cancer.   He was a good, kind, and caring man in every facet of his life, and although he was incredibly courageous and good spirited as he lived through the various stages of this horrible disease, we all witnessed how difficult it was on him. He loved sports and throughout his life was involved in supporting various causes.  An important part of running in the NYC marathon is the opportunity for my family to find a unique way to rally together and remember him for the great impact he had on us all. He would have loved to see our community working together to help find better treatments and one day, a cure.<!--EndFragment-->

Unfortunately, a few days after a 14-mile run I did at the end of August, I felt a lot of pain in my right knee.   After going to a few doctors, I was advised not to run this year and I needed to give my knee 2-3 months rest.   I am incredibly disappointed that I cannot run but compared to the issues many others have to deal with but this is a small feat to overcome.   Thank you for your donation and your generosty is greatly appreciated.  Donations do rollover to next year’s race, which I plan on running.   For this event, my wife Anne and daughter Jessica and I  will be volunteering on Race Day to help all runners, and specifically those with Team Purple, have a great event.   I will send updates from race day and all the news as it comes from Team Purple, along with the fundraising results. 

Welcome to the Team!!
