EVENT: 2015 Newport Marathon (R.I.)

EVENT DATE: Oct 11, 2015

THE STORY:

This year I am running the Newport Half Marathon - my first race in six years, since I ran the NYC Marathon in 2009. I'm doing this to honor our friends Liz and Cecile, two young women who died of brain cancer earlier this year. Please help me honor them by supporting both cancer research AND sailing! Here's how this fundraiser works:

You make a donation through this link. It will go directly to the National Brain Tumor Society, which is committed to finding a cure for brain tumors. My goal is to raise at least $1,000 for this great organization, which has a 4-star Charity Navigator Rating.

I will track your donations and pledge to match them, up to $500. My "match" will be donated via paper check to the Elizabeth Strojny Memorial Fund, administered by Tall Ships America in Newport. This scholarship fund supports the education and training of tall ship sailors like Liz. If you wish to donate additional funds directly to this great cause, please let me know and I'll be happy to give you the details.
