BENEFITING: Sarcoma Foundation of America
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2011
My dear friend and college roommate, Sheri Eke, lost her exceptionally brave and courageous battle with Spindle Cell Sarcoma this past January. She left behind three very young and beautiful children as well as an incredibly loving husband and father. I'm running in the ING NYC Marathon this November 6th and my original intentions were to celebrate my upcoming 40th birthday. However, now I'm running this race for Sheri. I don't plan on breaking any records I just hope to finish. And, with Sheri's help hopefully giving me that extra kick in the butt that I'll need around mile 20, I'll make it to the finish line in under 5 hours. Please help me raise money for the Sarcoma Foundation of America in honor of a beautiful mother, wife, friend and woman Sheri Lynn Eke.
Any donation is absolutely fantastic and may I suggest a gift of $26.00 since that's the distance I'll be running, 26.2 miles. Thanks a million and wish me luck!
