I watched the NYC marathon and in the back of my mind I said "One day, I'm going to run it!"
In August 2018, after a long run, my brother Dermot encouraged me to run New York and three months later, I did. It was an exhilarating experience and when I was done I knew I wanted to do it again. This year, I want to combine doing something I love with helping someone else. So, lucky to be healthy enough to achieve my goal, I am excited to help America SCORES New York achieve its goal of helping kids from NYC's under-resourced public schools bring to life their personal stories through poetry and to score some goals of their own on the soccer pitch. Please dig deep to support the kids of ASNY and together we will all get to the finish line.
America SCORES New York serves over 1,000 kids across 20 under resourced New York City public schools.
Our 2019 TCS New York City Marathon fundraising campaign will help this unique organization continue to strive and provide soccer, poetry and community service after-school programming.
