I am a 41-year-old social worker who lives with my husband Erik, and children, Faith(10) and Cole(7), in Valley Cottage, N.Y. I am a lifelong avid runner who will be running in my third NYC Marathon on November 6. I am so thrilled to run the NYC Marathon for what will be my 3rd consecutive year (and counting) for 'Team Ride to Give'! Ride to Give is a non-profit 501c3 charity that turns athletic ability into fundraising power for children who are injured, disabled, or ill. Their motto is "Give a Little, Change A Lot." 


I run for those who are not able to and never take my health and ability to compete for granted. I am conscious of how blessed I am to have two healthy children, and for this very reason, I want to help those who do not. I am honored that I can be in a position to run for this charity. The families and children that are struggling truly inspire me, and will keep me going when my legs tire. I feel motivated by the strength and positive sp irit these families demonstrate. 

I am so excited to be representing Team Ride to Give again in the NYC Marathon!! The 26.2 miles begins in Staten Island and goes through all five boroughs of NYC and ends in the famous Central Park. 

Please take a moment and look at how Ride to Give has benefitted so many families, http://www.ridetogive.com/ It would be greatly appreciated if you are able to help me fundraise for this amazing charity. 

A marathon is a personal struggle for a few hours, but these families endure a marathon daily. It is truly an honor to represent Team Ride to Give and to run the NYC Marathon for the 3rd year in a row for these incredible families and inspirational kids. 


Please make your tax-deductible donation and share my fundraiser. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! 


~Gail
