THE STORY:

Although runners often run solo, we never run alone. We are all connected. Runners are connected by the paths we trod, by the air we breath and through the sunshine, rain and snow on our faces. Running is bigger than all of life combined. One of the main reasons to run is not only for ourselves, but to run for others. We run for our spouses, for our children, and for many others. This year I am running for a special group of children. These children show extraordinary courage as they battle cancer. That is why we have the group called Companions in Courage. The Companions in Courage Foundation was founded by NHL Hall of Famer, Pat LaFontaine as a way to connect hospitalized children with their family, friends and heroes. They are recognized as a public 501(c)(3) charity, building interactive playrooms in hospitals. In addition, they have been selected by Microsoft to administer a program delivering mobile XBox 360 kiosks to patients bedsides throughout North America. Through the generosity of their "companions," innovative communications tools introduce technology to the healing process and improve the hospital experience for all patients by giving them "courage". This year, I am running The New York Marathon. I run this marathon so other children can fight their battles. I run for those children who cannot run. I run for Companions in Courage. Please join me in my run. Make a donation to Companions in Courage and make a difference in the lives of children. Check them out at www.cic16.org.
