THE STORY:

I played sports growing up but I never planned on becoming a runner and certainly never aspired to run a marathon! Somehow it started with my desire to run a 5k mud/obstacle race in September 2013. Truly, it was the playfulness of getting dirty in the mud and the challenge of the obstacles that appealed to both the kid and the competitor in me. As I trained from zero to 5k I learned that there lived a runner inside of me who I met for the first time. I liked her...so I kept running! By December 2014, I ran two marathons. I learned that anything is possible! 


Along the way I met amazing, inspirational, generous runners, especially within the NewRo Runners group. It was on a sunny June day in 2014 as I served as a race day volunteer at NewRo Runners' North Avenue Mile that I watched Brad Berman complete his first mile. Brad, an avid runner, suffered a massive hemorrhagic stroke less than a year prior while training for his 4th marathon at the age of 37. Brad was flanked by his wife, young children, and friends as a community celebrated his accomplishment and courageous recovery. His journey and the dedication of his family to help others touched my soul and inspired me. I am excited to harness the sense of courage, strength, tenacity, and unity that I witness in Brad and his family as I run my first NYC Marathon in November 2015.

I invite you to learn more about Brad's inspirational story and how donations to Team Train the Brain are directly changing patients' lives at Burke Rehabilitation Hospital through the creation of a lower limb robotics program for ankle/knee re-education. The program allows patients to maximize their rehabilitation efforts and has yielded impressive results. Over $600,000 has already been raised with funds immediately being put to use to purchase robots and train supporting staff. Team Train the Brain is setting its sights even higher to create scholarships for the robotics program for those who cannot afford its cost as well as fund research into traumatic brain injury and recovery. 


Join me in making this marathon mean so much more that the 5 boroughs, the 26.2 miles, and the 50,000 runners. Please donate generously and help change lives. Together we can make a difference, step by step, mile by mile.

 
Best,
Gayle
