THE STORY:

Digging this photo? Wondering what this is all about?

During my 35th birthday this year, I was sulking about getting older and was debating about whether or not to run my first marathon. Then I saw the list of charities the New York Rotary marathon team put together and I knew it was meant to be:

1. RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE: gives smiles and support to children and families affected by pediatric cancer and other life threatening diseases. I volunteered here when I first lived in NYC. It was an unforgettable experience and incredible place with amazing people.

2. GIFT OF LIFE INTERNATIONAL: provides life saving heart surgery for children from countries where heart surgery is not available. To date, they have served more than 10,000 young people. We can help ensure that every child has an equal chance to both survive and thrive, regardless of where they are born.

3. POLIO PLUS: immunizes children in the last four countries where polio still exists. Their goal is to eradicate polio from the earth. One vaccine cost $0.60. It is estimated that 10 million children can be affected by the disease in the next 40 years unless action is taken to ensure they are vaccinated.

4. NY ROTARY FOUNDATION: supports a soup kitchen in Harlem, provides manpower for a Thanksgiving Veteran’s meal, and supports work in disaster relief, including the recent earthquake in Haiti and past disasters of September 11 and Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.

These charitable causes are close to my heart and my family, and exemplify compassion, respect, equality for all humanity, positivity, action and results. I have started my training and committed to a goal to raise at least $2,500 within my network of friends and family. If you can spare any amount of money, please click on the Donate button on the top right of this page. Your donation is tax deductible.

Thank you for considering to support these causes, and I pledge to push myself to succeed in the marathon on November 7. Here's to "no injuries" in this big ole body between now and the big day. And yes, I will consider to run in a collared shirt and make that same face that you see in the photo! :-)

All the best,
Sean
