ORGANIZER: JUNIOR LEAGUE OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Hi everyone. I got asked by a work colleague if I wanted to run the NYC Marathon and raise money for the NYJL. I leapt at the opportunity.
35 years active military (still serving) in the Royal Australian Air Force with service in Iraq and Afghanistan and half marathons in Australia, Asia and North America, I thought it was time to take on my first full marathon.
There is no better marathon than the NYC marathon and there is no better charity than the NYJL.
The NYJL does fantastic community service and promotes strengthening of families and developing the potential of women. So your dontation will not only motivate me to get my aged bones off the couch, but will also o a long way to improving the lives of the people of this great city.
Every bit helps; please be generous.
