Dear friends and family, I have reached 50% of my fundraising goal because of your generosity and your belief that we can change the world. Thank you so much for helping me honor Ariel in this way. NYC streets will be safer because of you. Thank you.

EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I am running the NYC Marathon on November 6 to honor my daughter, Ariel Marina Russo, who lost her life when she got hit by a speeding SUV, while she was on the sidewalk, as she walked to school with my mother. All of the money raised will go towards making NYC streets safer for all.
Please support me in my endeavor to reduce traffic violence and save lives for Ariel.
