EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
As most of you know our son Jack has had arthritis since he was 2 years old. I have decided to go back and run the NYC Marathon while rasing funds for the arthritis foundation. Jack's treatment is going well and he is enjoying his freshman year of high school, basketball and time with his friends.
My father was an amazing marathon runner and loved the NYC marathon, he would be thrilled to know I'm carrying on his passion to help his grandson. No amount is to small to help kids like Jack. It is important to know that not only do adults suffer from the daily pain of arthritis but kids do too :-(
