BENEFITING: WINIFRED MASTERSON BURKE MEDICAL RESEARCH
ORGANIZER: RUN 4
EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2014
To my family, friends and colleagues - collectively, the "Cohig Village":
As many of you may know, I have been running for about twenty years. In addition to the outlet running offers for me to manage stress, I love the ability to see places in my community and on my frequent travels from a different perspective, which running offers me. All I need are my running shoes and my music and I can go anywhere.
I am privileged to be part of the Run4Brad team running in the 2014 New York Marathon this November. I've never run a marathon but have always wanted to and I can't think of a better way to do it than as a part of this team.
Brad is a part of the NHL family as his smart, courageous wife Jessica is my colleague. It has been incredibly moving and inspiring to see how Brad and Jessica not only have fought through Brad's difficult recovery from his brain injury, but to see them further mobilize a community by creating Run4Brad to raise money to help others. Brad and Jessica's journey is encapsulated in the video on the main fundraising page. You can also learn more through this link.
I am honored to be a part of the effort and hope you will donate to the cause. Please give to enable the Run4Brad team to meet (and exceed!) the $50,000 goal we've set - any amount is appreciated.
Thank you for all your support
