When I was 15, I had the opportunity to volunteer at a water station on the Queens side of the Pulaski Bridge around mile 13 while a member of St. Sebastian's Boys Brigade from Woodside, NY. It was an incredible experience that repeated three more times before lighting a slow but steadily burning candle within me. Over 25 years later, and after making my way through a marathon in Texas in 2012, my chance to run through familiar territory and hopefully receive some much needed water, cheers and financial support is finally here! If you or your loved ones have been touched by the incredible game of soccer, by youth sports, by team work, by motivating and educating kids, by downright positive thinking, or even if you happen to be one of the few who hasn't found a liking to the game just yet but you believe in helping provide health education and mentoring to children in need, PLEASE JOIN ME and my teammates led by our captain, Survivor Africa-Season 3 winner, Ethan Zohn, in raising money for Grassroot Soccer. Please help me exceed my goal of raising $3,000.00. No donation is too small.
