THE STORY:

As some of you may know, after a year of completing half marathons and 10Ks, I've automatically qualified to run the 26.2 mile New York City Marathon this fall through New York Road Runners' 9+1 program. 

What started as a goal to knock something off of my 'bucket list' has now turned into something much greater, as I will be running my first marathon in honor of my best friend's father, Ken Cohen, who recently passed away.

Ken was an unbelievably amazing man filled with positivity, generosity and warmth, and I personally have been so blessed to have him and the Cohen family in my life. Ken always said how 'impressed' he was with my athletic endeavors, and since he knew of my plan to run the marathon, I can't think of a better way to honor him than to run this race in his memory.

I’m hoping you will help me complete my first marathon and celebrate Ken by making a (tax deductible) donation to New Alternatives for Children, which Ken so generously supported. Information on the organization is below.
