THE STORY:

I am so excited to be preparing to run the 2016 NYC Marathon  - one of the best weekends in NYC!  Growing up in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn I remember how every first Sunday in November I would go to church with my dad, we would pick up the Sunday paper, hit Leske's Bakery for some black and whites then head up to Fourth Avenue with the dogs to watch the runners as they descended the Verrazano Bridge. Over the past several years, I have enjoyed watching  friends run for some amazing causes, especially Sloan Kettering, where my brother Denis underwent treatment.  NYC Marathon Week is always special and seeing such an array of international runners in every shape and size  truly makes you appreciate all that is great about America.

I am running the 5 boros in support of  our organization, The Moyer Foundation, a non-profit  founded by the King of  Baseball Longevity,  Philly's own Jamie Moyer, who pitched for 25 years in the majors and won the World Series with the Phillies in 2008, and his amazing tour de force wife Karen, mom to 8, and entrepreneur extraordinare.  Supported by caring volunteers and donors, a spectacular board of directors and an amazing staff with whom I am blessed to work with each day, our foundation team is truly making a difference in the lives of so many children and families.

Many of you know this is cause close to my heart. Our foundation supports two free signature programs for families: Camp Erin,  a camp based program for kids aged 6-17 who are grieving the death of someone close to them with programs in every MLB city in the US and Canada, and Camp Mariposa, a first-of-its-kind addiction prevention and mentoring program for youth 9-12  who are impacted by the substance abuse of a family member. We have helped over 22,000 families and with the launch of the Moyer Foundation Resource Center and our Capitol Hill campiagning to help military families and increase funding for those affected by addiction, we are on track to help thousands more... but we need your support. 

I would be honored if you would consider supporting my efforts in any way, no donation is too small (or too large :)). I would also love to hear from you the names of any of our loved ones you may be donating on behalf of and their stories, so I can reflect on those and honor them throughout my training and race.  I promise to do my best not to embarass myself or those of you who inspire and support me. 

Thank you for taking the time to consider helping further our mission. Hope to see some of you out there in November!

Warmly,

Mary

PS: NO.....SLEEP....'til  Brooklyn!
