BENEFITING: TUG MCGRAW FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: TUG MCGRAW FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
As many of you know, Mr. Frawley, Tappan Zee’s Athletic Director, suffered a brain aneurysm earlier this year. With a long road of recovery still ahead of him, the TZ community is right there with him every step of the way to ensure that he & his family does not fight this alone.
What many of you don't know is that I will be running this year’s NYC marathon as a tribute to Mr. Frawley, & his continued fight. The Tug McGraw Foundation was created to raise awareness & improve the lives of those affected by traumatic brain injuries like brain aneurysms, as well as brain tumors. I can go on & on about how much of an impact Mr. Frawley has had on my life both when I was a Dutchmen and even now, 5 years after I finished high school. Graduating from one of his student-athletes to one of his coaches has been the greatest honor, which is why I couldn’t help but honor him in return.
Mr. Frawley is TZ Athletics, & his genius is currently missed around the district. While the money I am raising will not help him directly, my goal is to make sure our community continues to keep him, & his family, in our thoughts & prayers as he continues to fight for his recovery.
Any donation, big or small, would be very much appreciated! Feel free to share the link too :)
Thank you all so much for your support, and I hope to see you on the sidelines of the NYC Marathon come November 6th giving us that extra push we runners so desperately need!
