We did it! I am happy to say that we met our goal to raise $3,000 for the St. Nicholas Project. Thank you very much for your generosity! As I mentioned before, all of the money will go to Catholic Charities to help provide winter clothing and other items to needy New Yorkers.
Thank you for your help – now it’s time for me to do my part and run the race! I will be starting at 10:40 am on Sunday, November 6th on Staten Island near the Verrazano Bridge and finishing (hopefully around 4 hours later) in Central Park near West 67th St.
If you want to follow me in real time, download the TCS New York City Marathon app and use my race number (52290) to track my progress.
Thanks again for your support, and pray for good weather!
Yours in Christ,
I have been accepted onto the Catholic Charities team to run the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon on November 6th. I am really excited to be a part of this team, especially because we are running to raise money for the St. Nicholas Project, a program that provides winter coats, hats, gloves, scarves, sweaters, and blankets to needy New Yorkers during the Christmas Season.
Would you help me raise money for this great cause? By being a part of the Catholic Charities marathon team, I have committed to raising at least $3,000 by October 17th. Whatever you can do would be a big help, and I would be honored to have you be a part of my marathon.
