BENEFITING: MICHAEL J FOX FOUNDATION FOR PARKINSONS RESEARCH
EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012
I'm running the 2012 ING NYC Marathon, for my late grandfather, Robert V. Lindsay.
My grandfather died earlier this year after fighting debilitating Parkinson's disease for over 15 years. He was born in NYC in 1926 and loved it throughout his entire life. He moved back to Manhattan for his last 4 years and showed me why this city is so special. His strength and optimism through difficult times inspired me.
I started running about two years ago and spent the last year training and running races through New York Road Runners. My grandfather was very excited that I qualified for this year's NYC Marathon.
In November, I'm running this race to honor my grandfather's memory in the city that we love.
Please donate in the memory of my grandfather, Robert V. Lindsay, to support the Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.
Thank you for your support, and l'll see you at the finish-line!
