On November 2nd, my close friend Sarah, and I are running the New York Marathon. It's not our first marathon together and I'm not sure yet whether it will be our last.
Many years ago we set a goal to run the New York Marathon together the year we turn 40. We are fortunate to be at a place in our lives where we can live up to that goal. We've been out there pounding the pavement together for our long runs each weekend. It's been some blood, lots of sweat and thankfully very few tears.
Of equal importance to achieving our personal goal is to take this opportunity to bring awareness to and raise money for a good cause. New Yorkers for Children is a non-profit organization that works with Child Services to improve the prospects of children supported by the child welfare system in New York. A lot of their focus is on children in the foster care system. As a parents, thinking about the 13,000 children in foster care is likely something we don't do enough. Please visit their site for more information newyorkersforchildren.org and consider donating to the effort below.
Thank you! Torrey
