Fractured fibula! Running NYC for Live On NYC in 2018.
November 02, 2017
On July 18, 2016 I donated a kidney to Robin Amarena, a woman from Rochester, NY whose search for a kidney was on the news. After seeing her story I contacted her transplant center, went through the tests and was a match. A new kidney not only affected Robin's life but the lives of her children and grandchildren. Organ donation not only helps the recipient but their families as well. LiveOnNY is an organ procurement organization dedicated to the recovery of organs and tissue for transplant. LiveOnNY works with 9 transplant centers and over 90 hospitals in the greater NY metropolitan region to facilitate organ donation. Through its work LiveOnNY saves the lives of people waiting for organs and gives them more time with their families. Become a part of their great work by donating to my NYC Marathon fundraiser.

LiveOnNY is meant to convey the duality and positivity of organ and tissue donation. Through donation, recipients and donors live on. Recipients live on through the selfless act of donors. Donors live on via a legacy made stronger as a result of their donation, and they live on through others.
