Fred's Team

A few weeks ago, my cousin, Adlar, made a very touching request. He told me that he was going to be running in the New York City Marathon on November 1 and that he wanted to run in honor of Isabella. He would be running as a member of Fred's Team, which is a collection of runners with the goal of raising money for cancer research. Please take a few minutes to visit his site and if you can, give a couple bucks to show support for this amazing gesture. Below is an excerpt from his web site.

This year, I'm running with Fred's Team to support
The Aubrey Fund for Pediatric Cancer Research at
Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Making
the decision to compete in a marathon was a big
one, and training for the race so far has been
grueling. However, I know that any challenge I
face in completing this personal goal is put into
perspective when I consider what children with
cancer face every day.

As most of you already know, cancer has affected
several members of my family as well as many
friends. Most recently, last November my cousin's
daughter Isabella was diagnosed with a massive
brain tumor. Her details can be found at:

influenced my decision to run the marathon and to
support a great cause.
