Matthew Webb of Manchester in the UK never thought he would run a marathon until he heard about New York Cares. This incredible organization has 59,000 volunteers helping 400,000 New Yorkers each year. Work includes children's literacy, adult education, walking shelter dogs and meals for the homeless.
Rachel Magerman thought she would never run a marathon until she heard what Matthew was doing. Rachel will be running the Manchester Marathon in April 2015 for a charity based there.
So no matter which side of the Atlantic you’re on please get behind this cause and show your generosity of spirit!
