THE STORY:

Hi Friends! In 111 days I will be running my first ever marathon and I'm humbled to have the opportunity to do so with the Sandy Hook Promise Team. Please help me reach my goal to raise $3,000 for this organization - any little bit helps and anything you can give to support my endeavor would be greatly appreciated!  


I've long been a staunch advocate for common sense gun laws proven to reduce gun-related deaths and injuries and now I'm thrilled to have been accepted to run the 26.2 mile distance - my first ever marathon in my beloved city of NY- to raise money for Sandy Hook Promise! 


Led by several family members whose loved ones were killed in the tragic mass shooting at Sandy Hook School on 12/14/12, SHP is dedicated to preventing gun - and other forms - of violence BEFORE it happens by educating and mobilizing parents, schools,and communities on mental health and wellness programs that identify, intervene, and help at-risk individuals. This is a moderate, non-political organization aimed at protecting children from preventable gun violence. 


After years of hemming and hawing about whether the marathon distance was a race I really wanted to commit to, running 9, primarily "off the couch", half marathons and various shorter distances requiring little structured training, and in the run up to my 38th birthday, I have decided to commit to this cause, this organization, this team, and this race and finally put a marathon in the books.  


Please support me in this effort and follow along to watch my fundraising and training progress as November nears!  Thank you!!

Doug went to Sandy Hook Elementary School and grew up in Newtown so this is close to his heart. As a teacher gun control needs to be priority to protect our children and get guns out of the hands of people who shouldn't own them 2 weeks ago
