Marathon for Maura
Organized by: Anthony Brandt
November 2011 Tony completed his first marathon in NYC. It was an amazing weekend filled with the love, energy, and excitement of a good friend's wedding and all the runners in the marathon (around 47,000 runners). This November, Tony will again be running the NYC Marathon. This year will be bitter sweet as he has dedicated his run to the memory of our daughter Maura who was still born 4/3/14. We always planned to take Maura on family runs in the park and on the B&A Trail. While we know that healing will be one step at a time, we know she is loved and will always be part of us. has committed to raising $3,500 for St. Jude's Heroes in Maura's honor. If you are able to donate to help him in his goal we would greatly appreciate it. Just click on the St. Jude's Heroes link below, and it will take you to his fundraising page. Thank you to all who have already donated!! If you aren't able to donate, we love you and we understand. If you could instead, please keep Tony in your prayers and thoughts. Training for 26.2 miles is a lot of hard work and he will need your emotional support and encouragement. If you are up for it, go for a run with him… Lord knows I can't keep up with his pace!
