Dear Friends, Family, Neighbors and Colleagues, I have been given an amazing opportunity to run the New York City Marathon for Team Northwell Health. I’ve been training hard and look forward to representing Northern Westchester Hospital on November 5th during this exciting 26.2 mile race taking place in the best city in the world.
Running for Team Northwell also provides me with the opportunity to raise money for a good cause. My goal is to raise $5000 in honor of Gregg Plunkett for the Stroke Center at Northern Westchester Hospital (http://nwhc.net/treatment-and-specialties/stroke-center) and Stroke Prevention and Rehab Research at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research (http://www.feinsteininstitute.org/stroke/).
Former South Salem, NY resident, father, husband and all around amazing guy, Gregg Plunkett, recently suffered from a stroke. This is a small but meaningful way to show our love for Gregg and support for Dawn and Kai Plunkett. It is important to know that strokes are the 5th leading cause of death in the U.S. and there are currently over 7 million stroke survivors in our country. Survivors of stroke can face difficult challenges and I hope this fundraising effort will help the advancements being made in stroke prevention and rehabilitation.
Please support me during my 2017 New York City Marathon. I promise to give it my all.
