Hello Good People!!

First and foremost, I hope that you and yours are safe and dry.

Secondly, I want to share with you, a peek into the many thoughts that have been running through my head since I found out that the NYC Marathon is still happening. Running it so soon after Sandy has not been an easy decision for me.

I kept thinking:
-What about the police force? Isn't there more important work for them to be doing?
-On the other hand, nothing brings NYC together quite like the Marathon.
-Is it disrespectful to the victims and their families to run and cheer so soon?
-What about NYC's economy, we need the profit from this race now more than usual?
...The thoughts go on and on, trust me!!

The best solution I could come up with is to RUN THIS THING AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE!! So I created this page in an effort to turn these MILES INTO DOLLARS for those in need.

I know that not everyone is in a position to give, so no hard feelings if you can't. However, if you have even a dollar or two to spare, that counts!!

What better way to unite the city in this dark (no pun intended) time than to run all 5 of the boroughs in one day and join together to make a difference for those who are suffering? I will do the running for us, don't worry!

Let's come together, like we know that NY always does, and take care of our own!!
