BENEFITING: Martin Richard Foundation
ORGANIZER: Martin Richard Foundation
EVENT: MR8 NYC Marathon
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
As a new dad, Martin Richard's message, carried on by the Martin Richard Foundation is his honor, particularly resonates. No More Hurting People. Peace. Even at 8 years old, Martin wanted to make the world a better place and was well on his way to doing just that. The day of the Boston Marathon attacks, we all lost a little bit of our innocence and Martin lost his life way too soon. His foundation, started by his parents to honor his memory, has done incredible work supporting local athletic, educational and community initiatives, all in an effort to carry on Martin's message and make our world a better place. I'm honored to have a chance to spread the word about this terrific organization over the next few months and bring Martin's message to my home state as I take on the New York City Marathon. I can only hope that my son, Eli, grows up in the better world that Martin envisioned. Please join me in supporting this amazing cause and spreading Martin's message. See you in Central Park on November 6.

Start spreading the news. New York City, here we come.
Team MR8 will run the TCS New York City Marathon for the third consecutive year to benefit the Martin Richard Foundation's mission of investing in athletics, education and community.
As we have done with all of our marathon teams, we set out to field a true team of athletes to run in New York City this November. We believe that we have accomplished this mission! We are excited to support and cheer on their progress.
Please help them reach their fundraising goal.
