On Sunday November 6th, in honor of my mother, I will be running the NYC marathon, pushing myself forward with the strength and resilience that my mother taught me in how she lived her own life. To that end, I would be so grateful if you would join me in honoring my mother's spirit on November 6th by making a donation, of whatever amount you are able, to JCCA (jccany.org), an organization whose simple mission is to repair the world, child by child, an organization that was very special to my mother and that continues to guide the work I do today in both conscious and subconscious ways. Making a contribution to JCCA in my mother's honor, as a thank you for what they provided for my family years ago, means more than I can put into words in a message that is more difficult to write than running 26.2 miles. Although my mother cannot be there to cheer on November 6th, she will be with me every step of the way. Thank you to each of you for anything you able to give, and more importantly, thank you for surrounding me with support in so many other ways that are too numerous to be named.
