EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2011
After saying that I will never run another full marathon, I am going back on my word and running one again. This time, I will celebrate 40 with a bigger purpose than just crossing the finish line. I will be running for team baby buggy a foundation that helps families in need in NYC, Chicago, Dallas, LA, New York, and Washington DC. Since its inception in 2001 Baby buggy has donated nearly 5 million items including 2.4 million diapers, 6300 cribs, 5200 strollers, 2200 highchairs, 2300 bath tubs, 2100 baby monitors and 1,900 playpens to families would have other wise had to go with out. I am reminded often how lucky I am and how lucky my nieces nephews and god children are. So it is in their honor that I will take on the 26.2 miles in hopes that one day all kids will be blessed with a roof over their heads and the basic necessities to succeed and prosper. My goal is to raise $2,500, I understand that there is always somewhere else to spend your hard earned cash, but I would not do so if I did not believe in the organization or the good that it does. All donations are welcome and greatly appreciated.
On November 6th I will then ensure every one of those life-changing donations are successfully carried over 26.2 miles and across the finish line in NYC. I hope to see you along the route and if I can walk for a post celebratory beer.
Thanks again for your support and love! I hope to see you soon.
