Run for Sandy Relief

Many of us are disappointed that the NYC Marathon that we've been waiting for has been cancelled. But we can turn this disappointment into something positive. Let's all come out tomorrow to Central Park (Tavern on the Green) at 9:40 AM (the original start time of the marathon) to run and support our friends and to raise much needed funds for the relief operations. Commit to a distance and an amount and tell your friends and family about it - ask them to donate. Some of us will be running an entire marathon
and some a couple of miles. Every mile and every dollar can make a difference.
Obviously there isn't going to be much in the form of "race" support but Priya and the kids will be there with water and would appreciate any help.
Please bring families and friends!
Suggestions are very welcome!

The link to make donations is: http://www.crowdrise.com/nyrrsandyrelief

I will send out possible routes for different distances that people might want to run so let me know preferred distances.

Please forward this to anyone who might be interested.

    I had trouble finding you all this morning. There were so many people in that part of the Park. I hope your runs and fundraising when well!

    I will try for a full marathon, but I'm going in to this untrained. But I'll do whatever maximum distance I can manage.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
