Dear Friends and Family,
I have recently committed myself to the task of running 26.2 miles on November 4th, and now I need your help. Why run a marathon?...Why not? Why run for Liberty Science Center?... Keep reading.
Growing up in Summit, NJ I was given many opportunities, including class trips to Liberty Science Center. Larger than life K’nex models, IMAX 3D movies (before they were all the rage), and the infamous touch tunnel were just a few of the many wonders that I got to explore. Living in NYC I've driven past Liberty Science Center on various occasions and I always reflect fondly on those early encounters with scientific discovery. It is my hope that future generations of students have the same opportunity that I did to play green-screen basketball, learn about surface tension, and discover the fascinating world of science. Thus, in exchange for guaranteed entry into the 2012 ING NYC Marathon, I have pledged to raise $3000 to be donated to Liberty Science Center.
Liberty Science Center gave me the chance to explore my scientific interests as a kid, and now more than 15 years later they are giving me the opportunity to run in one of the greatest and most popular marathons in the world. Help me give back and show my appreciation by donating whatever you can. I know times are tough, but every dollar counts and every penny matters. I thank you for being so generous and urge you to take a trip to the Liberty Science Center the next time you're in the mood to have your mind blown. The touch tunnel awaits.
