Sophie Sanam Lashkari
In Memory of Farshid Zadanfarrokh
I’m running the TCS New York City Marathon this year in November to honor the memory of my husband, Farshid Zadanfarrokh. He passed away on November 2014, after an incredible fight against cancer.
With this marathon, I’ll be raising money for PS3. The Charrette School. a charity that does support local public school education. This race, and the training that I’m doing to prepare for it, are the least I can do to honor such a strong human being.
I chose this race because it’s one of the hardest. It seems fitting because I want to honor the strength and courage that my husband showed daily for almost two years. I could run a marathon every day and it would still feel like nothing in comparison to what he went through. He suffered, but he fought to stay with us as long as he could.
Kian my son will be cheering for me during this training process or even maybe run with me. While I run, I’ll remember Farshid and reflect on his life. I hope he will be proud of me.
