EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
My wife Amy Zabetakis and I have been supporters of AmeriCares for many years. Since I wouldn't be much help in a clinic in Guatamala, I am doing my part by running the NYC Marathon with Team AmeriCares to raise money and awareness for this great organization.
For those of you that are not familiar with AmeriCares, it is the largest provider of healthcare supplies and medicine around the world. AmeriCares provides tools directly to healthcare providers who can make the most impact in their communitiy. Without good health, all of the other efforts to help individuals living in poverty are wasted.
Running in the NYC Marathon is also a personal goal for me and my health. After several years of sedentary living I picked up running five years ago. Three years ago I ran my first full marathon and while I enjoyed the experience, did not do as well as I had hoped. I am looking forward to improving my time while also supporting this great cause.
I hope that you will consider supporting me and Team AmeriCares.
