THE STORY:

Hello Everyone,

Thanks for checking this out.  This is one New Year’s Resolution that I AM keeping.  In the past I had made resolutions that I kept for no more than a few months.  Over the past several years, my beautiful wife has helped me quit smoking, find the path to a healthy dinner table and improve my overall wellbeing. In 2016, with a young baby motivating me even more, I have been determined to run consistently and make better changes to my health.  Once I got going, I needed a goal to shoot for.  I finished a handful of half-marathons in the past but never more than that.  Once I got going, I decided I might as well shoot for a full marathon.  What better marathon to run than the NYC Marathon.  So I started thinking, “If I am going to run 26.2 miles, why not raise money for a charity”.  So that’s where UNICEF comes in.  

UNICEF is a great cause and everyone know how they help children in need around the world.  Please have a look below to see some of the things they do.  I am running like “I stole it” so that I can stay healthy and grow old with my wife and daughter and looking forward to knocking out my first marathon.  I am committed to running 26.2 miles and raising at least $3,500 for UNICEF in the process. Please support me as I try to help a great cause and achieve a personal goal. 

Thanks

Sharif

U.S. Fund for UNICEF wrote -

UNICEF does whatever it takes to save and protect the world's most vulnerable children. Forty years ago, UNICEF figured out that promoting simple, low-cost interventions like hand washing and breastfeeding could save millions of lives. Undaunted by war or geography, UNICEF delivers.

Members of Team UNICEF NYC have committed to each raise a minimum of $3,500, in support of UNICEF's work worldwide.
