BENEFITING: MARDY FISH FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2015
Tom Fish, Mardy's father will be running the New York City Marathon to honor his son and raise money for Mardy's Children's Foundation!
When former U.S. #1 Tennis Professional Mardy Fish picked up his first tennis racquet, his father Tom Fish was right by his side, using tennis as a means to show Mardy a way to accomplish great things. Now, as Mardy wraps up his career at this year’s US Open in NYC, Tom will be with him, honoring his son’s accomplishments, and setting the stage to accomplish even more important things in their future. And what better way to honor Mardy's accomplishments than to offer other children the opportunity to recognize their own potential to accomplish great things?
Tom will be running the NYC Marathon to raise funds for one of Mardy's enduring accomplishments: his Children's Foundation (MFCF).
MFCF uses health and fitness programs to teach the same important lesson Tom taught Mardy all those years ago when Mardy picked up that first racquet – that every child has potential for greatness. Mardy and Tom are honored to celebrate their accomplishments by helping children discover the greatness in themselves.
You can help Tom honor Mardy by pledging your support to Tom’s NYC Marathon run. In doing so, you help Mardy and Tom make important and lasting differences in the lives of others. Discover your own potential to be great by helping another child discover their own. Visit mffkids.org to learn more about us.
