NYC Marathon Update

I am very pleased to report that thanks to everyone's tremendous generosity, Adlar was able to reach his fundraising goal for the marathon!  Now all that is left is the actual race on Sunday.

Speaking of the race, you will be able to keep track of Adlar as he makes his way through the five boroughs of New York by visiting the following website: (Please note that this link is not active until November 1.)  At the site, just enter "Adlar Simmons" or bib number 59786 to see where he is during the race.

So again, good luck Adlar and thanks for your thoughtful gesture, and thanks to everyone who donated.

Almost Time to Run!

We are now less than a week away from the New York City marathon and my cousin Adlar is extremely excited to be running. The last time we spoke, he had just done a 20 mile run to prepare and he said that he felt pretty good and ready for the real thing. The race will be on Sunday, November 1. You can find more information about the race at the NYC Marathon home page.

Adlar is also very close to reaching his fund raising goal, so if you haven't already donated, please take a minute now and follow the links over to the right in the Fred's Team section. The fund raising will go to cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York City.

We all plan on going into the City on that day to cheer him on!
