BENEFITING: THE MAYORS FUND TO ADVANCE NEW YORK CITY
I have put an enormous amount of effort to train for this marathon -my first one. I believe that anything can be accomplished if one puts all that one has to it -even the unimaginable: running 42km at once and living to tell the story! (as you know, the first guy that this this died on arrival, so this is by every measure a gigantic effort for anyone).
At the same time, it breaks my heart to see and hear the people that have lost everything in the hurricane that just hit New York City, where this marathon will be held. I don't wish that agony to anyone, and I hope that by raising funds we can help them recover faster.
One hundred percent of donations to the Mayor’s Fund are being dispersed to NYC hurricane relief efforts and organizations. The City is currently identifying immediate aid needs, including food, water and hygiene supplies, as well as long-term relief and restoration efforts.
Anything can be accomplished if one puts all that one has to it. Let's do it!
