BENEFITING: FJC - A Foundation of Donor Advised Funds
EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
Running just one (and only one!) marathon has been something on my lifetime check list and if it was going to be just one, I thought the New York Marathon had to be the race to run. I nearly satisfied the goal last year, however the event was cancelled two days before the race as a result of Hurricane Sandy. So, in 2013, my training has resumed and am hopeful to be ready come November 4th to give the New York Marathon another go.
I am honored to announce I will be running this year in memory of Lulu and Leo Krim and to benefit the Lulu & Leo Fund. The Lulu & Leo Fund was established by their parents, in memory of their two children.
Lulu and Leo’s parents, Marina and Kevin have been dear friends, to my wife Erica and I over the years.
"We have felt the critical importance of creativity as a healing force and want to ensure that these creative outlets are available to all children and communities facing adversity. We created the Lulu & Leo Fund to inspire, engage, educate, heal and grow the hearts and minds of children facing hardships, giving them lifelong passion, skills and — most importantly — hope." ~ Marina & Kevin Krim
Donations of any size would be greatly appreciated for this great cause. Please join me in honoring the Lulu & Leo Fund as I set off to run 26.2 miles around NYC.
The Lulu & Leo Fund is fiscally sponsored by FJC, a 501 (c) (3) Not-for-Profit Public Charity and a Foundation of Philanthropic Funds. As such, all gifts and donations are therefore fully deductible to the extent allowed by law. Tax ID #13-3848582
