Last year I ran my first marathon ever in honor of my step mom Debbie Diaz who passed away at age 50 from colon cancer. Ironically, Debbie was an avid runner, (she had 5 minute miles down pack.... I am a 13 minute miler).. In any event, I wanted to focus on something that would make a difference and decided to focus on "The Kids" this year. My efforts will go to Team for Kids NY!!!

About Team For Kids
Team for Kids was established in 2002 as the primary charity fund-raising vehicle for New York Road Runner’s youth services division. Funds raised through Team for Kids provide free or low-cost school and community-based health and fitness programs to children who would otherwise have no access to regular physical activity. Currently, our programs serve nearly 100,000 children each year in more than 400 schools across New York City, the nation, and South Africa. With obesity still on the rise, NYRR’s youth services equip children with the tools they need to become physically fit for life, while also incorporating goal-setting, character-building, and nutrition education.

Each year, nearly 1,500 Team for Kids runners toe the line in bright green jerseys at the ING New York City Marathon and the New York City Half-Marathon. Supported by a team of elite coaches and friendly Team for Kids staff members, these athletes enjoy great race day perks in addition to personalized training plans designed to create an optimal marathon or half-marathon experience. While out on the course, members enjoy the camaraderie that can only come with having trained together for several months, and get an extra boost when they pass cheering stations full of kids benefiting from the youth services our members work so hard to fundraise for.
