BENEFITING: THE MAYORS FUND TO ADVANCE NEW YORK CITY
Dear Friends and Family,
On Sunday, November 4th, I am running the NYC Marathon as a tribute to my fellow New Yorkers and everyone that has been touched by the devastation of Hurricane Sandy. Over the past few days, I've wrestled with the decision whether or not to run, but ultimately I stand by the mayor's decision to hold the race and show the world that New York can and will recover from this disaster.
Please consider joining me in supporting the Mayor's Fund, or volunteering to help as we rebuild our city http://www.nyc.gov/html/nycservice/home.html.
