"Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;" (3.1.1)
Shakespeare had King Henry V say that as he implored his troops onto battle against the French whereas I, dear freinds, will be leaving the French people to their wine and cheese and instead I am asking you to once again support my efforts in the running of the 2016 NYC Half Marathon for the NY Alzheimers Association.
On March 20th, I will be positioned in Central Park, ready for the countdown to begin a 13.1 mile journey that will pass Mt. Sinai Hospital on Fifth Avenue (I will be waving hello this time instead of stopping at the emergency room), over the Harlem hills, down the West side into Times Square turning right at 42nd Street tono the West Side Highway, past the Freedom Tower and round the bend to the South Street Seaport. Writing this makes it seem so simple and effortless as only I wish it was. Finding a cure for Alzheimers diseas for many scientists and researchers also has been a hard and complicated struggle that continues to this day. Advances have been made and more still need to be accomplished as this diease afflicts more and more people.
It is almost 23 years ago that my own father succumbed to Alzheimers disease and that is why I am asking you to financially support my fund raising efforts for the 2016 NYC Half Marathon. The funds raised go to local research organizations and also to community outreach to assist those families affected.
A tax exempt donation can be made in a variety of ways. A check (made out to Athletes to End Alzheimers) can be sent to me (16 Glenwood St., East Patchogue, NY 11772) and I will forward it to the Alzheimers organization. I also have this fundraising website on Crowdrise.com where you can log on to make a donation too. Any method you choose will be greatlyt appreciated.
Thank you once again, dear friends,
