Grace Kim's Fundraiser:

Run For NYC

Hi, my name is Grace and I am running the 2012 ING New York City Marathon. Like many runners, I am torn about whether the city should be hosting the marathon this Sunday, November 4..

Staten Island is where thousands will gather on Sunday morning, and yet many on the Island do not have power and are still dealing with flood damage. I mean no disrespect to those dealing with he aftermath of Sandy by running on Sunday- I am praying for you and our city.

For the last year I've been training for 11/4/12 wanting to run FOR something but didn't know what for, until today.

I am asking those who are able to donate $5 or whatever you can to NYC relief efforts and share this link with your friends on Facebook and twitter. In return, I will run 26.2 miles with your name etched on my race day shirt and my blog, It's not much, but know that I will take each step with you in mind.

I am simply one New Yorker hoping to help other New Yorkers, but on Sunday we are all New Yorkers. Will you join me and help?

*All funds raised will go to the Red Cross.
