For more than fifteen years I’ve supported a terrific organization called Fred’s Team, named in honor of Fred Lebow, co-founder of the New York City Marathon, who died of brain cancer in 1994.
I’ve had the privilege of running seven marathons with Fred’s Team and have also competed in a marathon relay, triathlons, as well as two cycling events, raising over $60,000 for Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York.
If you want to know how and why I became involved in this fantastic organization, you can click HERE to read a story I wrote a few years ago.
When you run for Fred’s Team, you run with more than just a PR in mind. You run for others who can’t, your run for those you miss, and you run to try and make a difference. You’ll never forget it, and you’ll never feel more empowered.
