EVENT: 2012 ING New York City Marathon - $1 Mil a Mile

EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012

THE STORY:

As many of you know, I am running the New York Marathon on the 4th of November (a date rapidly approaching). To give purpose to my plodding and meandering (beyond rapid destruction to my joints) I have set a goal to use my run to raise money for a good cause. The cause I am running for is New York Cares, a charity which provides SAT tutoring (amongst other initiatives) to college-bound high school students who otherwise would have limited access to resources and support. The majority of the students who attend the program would represent the first in their families to graduate high school (let alone to attend college/university). I volunteer as a tutor with the program and can attest to the positive impact it has on its students. Any donation - $10 or 6.50 pounds sterling or whatever you are comfortable contributing -- to New York Cares would be money well spent (and tax deductible to you Yanks). By the time I reach mile marker 25 the generous support will provide some much needed motivation to carry myself onwards for the final 1.2 miles (praying for a few strong southerly gusts down 5th Avenue would also be appreciated). Thanks in advance for your support! :-)
