Race To Recover: Thank You!
“We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.”
Mother Teresa of Calcutta
This post is to simply and whole-heartedly say THANK YOU! Two weeks ago I wrote about running the New York City Marathon as a “Race To Recover,” in which I pledged to raise funds for hurricane recovery efforts around NYC, post-Hurricane Sandy.
Contributions quickly rolled in from a wonderfully supportive community of people: runners, non-runners, friends, family – some local, some abroad. In short, all friends of New York and equally concerned about the devastation brought upon this magnificent city.
After the New York City Marathon was canceled (a day after announcing my intention to run and fund raise), I quickly made alternate plans. This past Sunday, November 11, I ran the Pensacola Marathon with a special bib that designated me as a “New York Marathon” runner. I ran with heart and with thoughts of your encouragement.
I’m happy to announce we reached the target goal of donating $2620.00 to support relief and recovery efforts in NYC through the Mayor’s Fund. None of this would have been possible without you!
So again, my sincerest thanks and appreciation for helping this become a goal realized.
