Since this year's marathon will move forward and I am registered, I will be using my participation in the race as an opportunity to help raise money for efforts related to assisting communities in my area directly affected by Hurricane Sandy. I realize that a marathon is pretty insignificant in comparison to the aftermath of this tragedy, but I'm intent on making something positive out of my running it.
As a born-and-bred Brooklynite, it was important that I ensure all donations raised through this fundraising page go directly to an organization that will help my fellow NYers. The Brooklyn Recovery Fund (set up by the Brooklyn Community Fund), has been established to quickly get much needed assitance to Brooklyn communites recovering from the Hurricane. All donations made here will go directly to this fund.
