THE STORY:

Kathie Horejsi wrote - 

I wore a baby in a backpack when I watched a New York Marathon for the first time in 2001, the year we moved to Brooklyn from Seattle.  It was the first big public event in the city to go ahead as scheduled after 9/11.  The air smelled of smoke but the sun was shining, the runners ran and crowds cheered.  It was inspiring.  I've watched every marathon since then, always saying maybe someday.  Well this is my someday.  I will be turning 50 in November and running my first marathon!

YMCA of Greater New York wrote -

Team McBurney is running in the 2012 ING Marathon raising funds for the Strong Kids Campaign!

They're Counting on Us... Contributions to the YMCA's annual Strong Kids Campaign ensure that no child or family is turned away from life-enhancing YMCA programs because of the inability to pay. Each year, the YMCA of Greater New York provides financial assistance to tens of thousands of local youth and families in need. These requests are now rising to unprecedented levels. The YMCA of Greater New York, through its annual fund-raising, wants to be there to meet them.

We're Counting on You... The YMCA exists to promote the healthy development of all kids and their families regardless of their financial means. Our goal this year is $6.5 million. Each dollar contributed to the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign goes directly to making YMCA programs and membership available to those in need.
