THE STORY:

I am so excited and honored to be running the New York City Marathon in honor of my best friend's dad, John Jakubowski, who fought hard in a battle against Pancreatic Cancer. Sadly, Mr. Jakuboski passed away, and the family is still struggling with the disease. With your help, I am going to raise $4,000 to help find a cure (or a better way to diagnose) this horrible disease, and to honor Mr. Jakubowski and his family.

 

More about John Jakubowski:

I was terrified to meet Mr. Jakubowski the first time I visited the Jakubowski house in 2013. Jenny had told me stories about her father, how much of a 'boss' he was, and in my mind he was like a mobster. Nevertheless I found myself standing in the doorway of his library squeaking "Hi Mr. Jakubowski," he whirled his chair around and invited me to sit on a shiny leather armchair across from him. (Oh lord, this is where he grills me about my family and my beleifs... isn't he supposed to be stroking a cat or something?). But as we started talking, all my fears were allayed. We bonded over opera music, he told me about a new artist he had just discovered and played a song for me. Something about this big scary man consulting iTunes to play the latest opera hit made me smile. He was the kindest mobster I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

 

$4,000 is a long way to go, but so is 26.2 miles, and I promise if you help me reach $4,000, I will run until I reach that finish line. Thank you for your help!
