THE STORY:

 

Dear Family and Friends,

My brother and I will be running the 2012 NYC Marathon this Sunday, November 4, 2012.  We've been looking forward to running our first marathon for a very long time.  Unfortunately, the overwhelming sense of excitement that we had leading into our final week of preparation has suddenly been overtaken by sadness due to the impact Hurricane Sandy.

We don't agree with the decision made by Mayor Bloomberg and the New York Road Runners organization to continue to hold the marathon this Sunday in light of the recent events and the amount of people that still need help.  However, we do recognize that we committed to run this marathon and this decision is beyond our control.

That being said, my brother and I would like to dedicate this race to all of those that have been impacted by Hurricane Sandy and we have focused our efforts on raising funds for the American Red Cross.  The American Red Cross provides shelter, food, emotional support and other assistance to those affected by Hurricane Sandy.

We ask that you please help us reach our fundraising goal to help those impacted by Hurricane Sandy.  We also invite you to come out to NYC to support us as we run in the 2012 NYC Marathon. 

Sincerely,

Lenny and Alex Garzon
