6 days to go ................... and now I'm scared.  See more

THE STORY:

While working in New York last year I made a crazy bet with a younger, thinner and fitter colleague. Could I emulate Simon Pegg and run 26 miles without collapsing? At that time running six miles wasn’t very likely but never being one to shy away from a challenge I shook on it and went out to buy new trainers. Eight months later I am now one of Nike’s best customers and am almost ready to complete my challenge. I just hope that training in Mill Hill will be sufficient to get from Staten Island to Central Park, with a bit of sightseeing on the way.

In order to justify my efforts (and afternoons of sitting on the sofa post training run) I am also raising money for a hugely worthy cause. NYRR Team for Kids is a charity which creates and supports programs for children in underserved communities throughout the United States. For more information on the charity go to www.nyrrf.org/about

Your support is hugely appreciated. See you at the finish line…

LET'S GET MORE KIDS RUNNING IN 2011!!

When you donate to or raise funds for NYRR youth services, kids benefit. Childhood obesity is now an epidemic and many children are not getting the daily physical activity they need to lead healthy lives. The funds raised by Team for Kids members support New York Road Runners youth services programs and make a direct difference in children lives by providing:

  • Training for teachers, coaches, field managers, and coordinators, most of whom are volunteers
  • Incentives for children to encourage them to maintain attendance, demonstrate sportsmanship, and strive for and achieve fitness and personal-achievement milestones
  • Entry fees and transportation costs so participants in our programs can compete in races and attend running-related sporting events
  • Resources to establish programs in areas of greatest need.

Team for Kids started with a small group of runners participating in one race. Now, thousands of team members are running and receiving donations from generous contributors worldwide. This powerful outreach directly affects the number of children who benefit from our programs.

If you're running in the 2011 ING NYC Marathon with us, select the JOIN THE TEAM button above and become a fundraiser for Team For Kids. Then, share your page with your friends & family.

By pledging funds to a Team for Kids runner or joining the cause as a fundraiser, YOU are an important part of the solution. Together, we can end childhood obesity within a decade and give more children the gift of running.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
