Sarah Reiley's Fundraiser:

Run to get NYC up and running again

THE STORY:

I have been saying for a long time that I would never run another marathon, unless I could run New York.  I lied. 

As many of you know, I was supposed to run the NYC marathon today, but I spent the day doing hurricane relief work in Red Hook, Brooklyn instead.  But I can't let all those months of training go to waste, so next Saturday, November 10, I will head down to Virginia to run the Richmond marathon to support the Mayor's Fund for Hurricane Relief.  Sandy’s victims will be in my heart every step of the way.  If you haven't done so already, please consider showing your support for the run with a donation to the Mayor's Fund for Hurricane Relief.

I have tried for years (literally!) to get an entry into the New York City marathon, and trained for months.  So of course Friday's decision to cancel the 2012 NYC marathon brought tinge of disappointment -- along with an enormous wave of relief.  But I guarantee that my disappointment pales in comparison to the disappointment, frustration, anger an sadness of anyone who lost a home, business, or a loved one this week.  I am incredibly lucky to have escaped the storm unharmed, but I want to support those who weren't so lucky by helping in every way that I can.  

Today I did cleanup work with Red Hook Recovers and the Red Hook Initiative.  In the last few days I've also volunteered with the Sandy Baggers, organized and disseminated supplies at a distribution center, and volunteered a shelter for the displaced.  I know runners who spent the day running supplies to Staten Island, delivering donations to Coney Island, and doing cleanup in the Rockaways.  It has been truly amazing to see the way New Yorkers have come together these last few days.

As wonderful as the volunteer work is, there is also a huge need for funding.  People need to rent generators, dumpsters and water pumps.  They need to pay for mold removal and new sheetrock.  They need cleaning supplies and new appliances.  Even $5 helps.  So please contribute to the Mayor's Fund for Hurricane Relief.  

If you are near an affected area but can't donate money, please consider donating supplies.  Buckets, work gloves, mops, bleach and other cleaning agents, facemasks, rags, rakes and brooms are in especially high demand.  There doesn't seem to be as much of a need for clothes, except for winter coats, hats, scarves and gloves - winter hit NYC this weekend and many are still without power.  

The Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City has set up a Hurricane Relief fund to help get this city back on track.  I'll be running for relief in Richmond.  Please support the cause.  Thank you.
