NYC Marathon Part Deux -
To all my friends, family and people with wallets,
This year I have decided to run the New York City Marathon (again) and this year I entered the marathon lottery (again), but was closed out because of the vast number of applicants (again). Conspiracy?
However, I have secured a space through alternative means (again) by agreeing to run for a charitable organization and have agreed to raise $3,000 for Liberty Science Center (again). As you all know, giving to others and organizations is something that I live to do each and every day.
I was hoping that I could have a little help from my friends, family and people with extra cash to meet my fund raising obligation. Below is the like to the website for Liberty Science Center – if you feel that you want to donate, please click on the link and choose me as the runner that you want to donate.
Here are several reasons that you should donate:
1. Liberty Science is a great place to go with your children (located in beautiful, scenic and safe Jersey City), the center is a great place to bring your children on a rainy day in the fall/winter so they do not destroy the house, drive you nuts and even learn a thing or two while being outside;
2. My office is having an interoffice competition (smack talking) and one of the other attorneys (not to be mentioned herein to protect his privacy) has been talking about his running prowess for years, now it is time to run each other into the ground and see who can claim the title as “Fixler & LaGattuta, LLP Running Champion”;
3. If you ever wanted to have a free front row seat to the greatest spectacle of human suffering – come out on November 4, 2012 and watch between miles 20 and 26 to see the agony – I will hopefully be one of those people making it to the end; and
4. Instead of paying taxes on this money and bloating the federal government, donate to and deduct!
Thank you in advance for all of your generosity.
Your humble friend and colleague -
Paul F. LaGattuta III
