BENEFITING: Crohn's & Colitis Foundation
ORGANIZER: Crohn's & Colitis Foundation
EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2014
I am proud to finally be attempting to accomplish my longstanding goal of running the NYC Marathon. However, no-one would be prouder of me than my friend Scotty Weingard, in whose honor I am running. Scotty was quite an accomplished marathoner having run several in very respectable times to which I aspire. The best picture I ever saw of him was running in the San Diego Marathon on a beautiful day, at this point, many years ago. Were he not in the towers on that horrific day he would undoubtedly be running the race with me in November and coaching me (and likely laughing at me) all the way to the finish line.
I am also proud to be running the race in support of the Crohns and Colitis Foundation of America and would encourage you to join in that support of this organization in the important work it does to cure these conditions that plague too many of our friends and others in our community and to improve the lives of those affected by these diseases.
Thanks in advance and hope to see you on 1st Avenue on Nov. 2.
