BENEFITING: SANDY HOOK PROMISE FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: SANDY HOOK PROMISE FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I am thrilled, honored and privileged to be running the 2016 TCS NYC Marathon in partnership with Sandy Hook Promise. Running the NYC marathon will be fulfilling a life-long dream of mine. Partnering with Sandy Hook Promise and working to impact the mental health crisis and the resulting epidemic of gun violence will make this endeavor even more meaningful for me.

Sandy Hook Promise is a national non-profit organization founded and led by several family members whose loved ones were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012. Our Mission: Prevent gun-related deaths due to crime, suicide and accidental discharge so that no other parent experiences the senseless, horrific loss of their child.
Based in Newtown, Connecticut, our intent is to honor all victims of gun violence by turning our tragedy into a moment of transformation by providing programs and practices that protect children from gun violence.
By uniting people of all beliefs and backgrounds who value the protection of children to take meaningful actions in their homes and communities, we will prevent gun violence and stop the tragic loss of life.
