Hi All; I wanted to reach out and thank everyone who donated once again and update you as to the efforts from Race2Rebuild. I received this a few days ago and would like to pass along as I think it is a good representation of the work we are doing.

"We are days away from our goal to raise $41,000 by July 1 to support the rebuilding of Mary Wernersbach's home and the Gerritsen Beach Vollies Center. Gerritsen Beach, a Zone B community that was never asked to evacuate for Hurricane Sandy, got swept away by a 10-foot wall of water – a “mini tsunami” in the words of Doreen Garson, Chief of the Gerritsen Beach Volunteer Fire Department, known as “The Vollies.” In the wake of the storm, 90% of the residents had major damage to their homes and cars.

I spent some time with Mary yesterday and I wanted to share with you how inspired she is by the entire team and your commitment to rebuild by racing. I learned that her house is the home she grew up in. As you know, she was an NYPD detective for 22 years. She left the job after being diagnosed with MS. She always wanted to race the NYC Tri. Now she can't. Race hard. Race for Mary.

I also spent some time with Doreen Garson, chief of the Gerritsen Beach Volunteer Fire Department today. There are 35 volunteer firefighters ("Vollies"). All of them lost their homes in Sandy. The Vollies Center was the lifeline for Gerritsen Beach when Sandy hit, providing food, basic needs and power to the community as families had "nothing but the clothes on their backs." Doreen said that the most important thing that Gerritsen Beach needs now is to get families back into their homes. With your race, you will do just that. Race with resolve. Race for the Vollies."

Also, if you intend on working with a corporate match please let me know so I can enter than in my calculations.

Thanks again all!
