THE STORY:

As most of you know, I am an enthusiastic diver, traveling to far away places to spend time on the most incredible reefs.  When I first got certified in 1999, sharks were present on almost every ocean dive I did.  In my 18 years of diving, the amount of sharks has decreased significantly, and the overal conditions of the reefs have greatly diminished.

I ran the NYC marathon in 2013 and vowed to never do that again, but I don't seem to listen to myself very well, so I'm running it again this year.

Since I am already guaranteed a spot in the 2017 TCS NYC Marathon, I do not need to fundraise to get in.  I am fundraising solely because Project Aware is a cause I believe in from the bottom of my heart.  

If you have any donation dollars available, I will gladly accept them on Project Aware's behalf.

Project AWARE's 2017 TCS NYC Marathon Team are fundraising for a global challenge, helping tackle two of the biggest threats facing our ocean – marine debris and over-exploitation of shark and ray species.

These endurance super heroes are bringing the community together to raise critical funds and awareness for the plight of our ocean and its wildlife. 

Ocean protection depends on our actions, large and small. Now, more than ever before, we are taking a stand for conservation. Please generously support this challenge to help: 

  • Fight to stop the ugly journey of our trash
  • Insist on full protections for the most vulnerable shark and ray species
  • Negotiate policies that ensure a brighter future for our ocean and its wildlife     

Thank you for supporting ocean protection through Project AWARE's 2017 TCS NYC MarathonTeam, it fuels grassroots activities and policy change in two areas - Marine Debris and Sharks in Peril - necessary to ensure a clean, healthy ocean planet today and in the future.
