I've decided to use the #nycmarathon as a platform to raise money for emergency relief to the Mayor's Fund.  See more

THE STORY:

Dear friends, family, fellow New Yorkers and everyone that has been affected by Sandy,

I can't lie; the decision to go forward with this Sunday's NYC Marathon left me with mixed emotions. Is it too soon? Are we taking precious resources and man-power away from desperate areas in need? Is it just insensitive??

Despite these questions and emotions, the mayor has decided to move forward with the marathon. I love this city. I love this marathon. I never thought those two loves would clash. Instead of wallowing in any further negativity and questioning my participation, I've decided to use it as a platform to raise money for emergency relief to the Mayor's Fund. Not only is it my hope that this marathon will truly be a symbol of our city's strength and triumphant spirit, but a catalyst to raise money when we, ourselves and our neighbors, need it the most.

No matter what your opinion is about the decision to go forward with this marathon, we can all agree that help is needed. Please consider donating, and I vow that every step I take during this marathon will be dedicated to those affected by Sandy.

With everything I've got,
Denae
