THE STORY:

Jean Macksony, 30 and a self-taught runner, claimed third-place in the Half-Marathon for Peace, June 9 in Port-au-Prince. Reflecting on his achievement, which qualified him for a spot on the J/P HRO team for the ING New York City Marathon, Macksony said: “I know a thing or two about the struggles many have faced since the devastating earthquake that hit Haiti on January 12, 2010.”

As a young man he faced many financial struggles that didn’t allow him to attend school, which left him unemployed for many years and seeking a purpose in life. “I don’t know how else to explain it, but it was like a blessing. I watched runners on television and on the streets, it just clicked for me that this is what I wanted to do,” he said. “I’ve been running ever since.”

Macksony has been one of Haiti’s leading marathon-runners for the past 12 years, and is admired by proud family members for his perseverance in the face of many challenges. He says he continues to count his blessings as he embarks on a new journey to the ING New York City Marathon in November where he seeks to represent his country with pride. “I want to put Haiti’s athletes on the world map.”
