EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I'm excited to be running the New York City Marathon with Team TransAlt -- the official charity team of Transportation Alternatives, New York City's leading advocate for better biking, walking and public transit.
My family lives in New York City without a car, so being able to get where we need to go safely is incredibly important to us. My wife and I often bike to work, and we want our two-year-old son, who just figured out how to pedal his tricycle, to grow up in a city where he can safely walk to school.
When you make a donation to my fundraising campaign, you are directly supporting Transportation Alternatives' advocacy work, which empowers New Yorkers from all walks of life to take action for safer, more sustainable streets.
You're joining a network of over 160,000 supporters and activist committees working locally in every borough fighting for street design and infrastructure improvements that reduce speeding and traffic crashes, save lives, and improve daily transportation for all New Yorkers.
TransAlt has always loved biking and walking, but now we're running. Say you're with us for the ultimate celebration of New York City streets and support Team TransAlt today.
