THE STORY:

If I go back a decade ago to 2003, one of my favorite years, three extraordinary events occurred in my life-- I ran the NYC marathon with my husband, gave birth to our first child Ella and spent a week learning to surf in Mexico with Izzy Paskowitz. It was a fabulous, busy and incredibly rewarding year!

Who knew that I would,  a decade later,  be running the NYC Marathon again with my husband Van with our five and ten year old daughters cheering us on.  We have picked a wonderful charity that is close to our hearts to support this year.  Please help us in our fundraising efforts for Izzy and Danielle Paskowitz's non-profit organization "Surfers Healing" -- a successful autistic therapy program.  

Surfers Healing:
Surfers Healing was founded by Israel and Danielle Paskowitz. Their son, Isaiah, was diagnosed with autism at age three. Like many autistic children, he often suffered from sensory overload-- simple sensations could overwhelm him. The ocean was the one place where he seemed to find respite.

A former competitive surfer, Israel hit upon an idea--with Isaiah on the front of his surfboard, and Izzy steering from the back, the two spent the day surfing together. Surfing had a profound impact on Isaiah. Israel and Danielle decided they wanted to share this unique therapy with other autistic children. They began to host day camps at the beach where autistic children and their families could be exposed to a completely new experience of surfing.
