BENEFITING: Achilles International Inc.
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Over the 8 marathons I've run, I have always been so moved by the athletes with every kind of disability who share the course with me. They truly epitomize grit and determination, and their road to the finish line takes so many more efforts than mine. Seeing these athletes has always pushed me forward, and now I'd like to pay it back. This year I will be participating in the NYC Marathon as a guide for an Achilles International athlete. Please join me in supporting this wonderful organization.
The athlete I'm supporting is Jan, who at 74 years young has made it her goal to cross that NYC Marathon finish line once more. After 39 heart surgeries and even enduring two stress fractures during training, Jan is determined to make it to the end. Along with another guide, family friend Holly, we are going to help Jan get there. Thanks for your support!
