When the 2011 NYC Marathon was canceled due to Hurricane Sandy I decided to step up my game and turn a lost opportunity into a way to help those people who were affected by the disaster. I decided I would return home to Boston and run 1 mile for each $10 donation to the Red Cross I could raise. Little did I know how viral the event would go. Within just a few hours I was being contacted by news outlets, friends and family asking how they could help. I lined up some sponsors in Boston and made a plan. Together with several friends, acquaintenances, and strangers we raised over $3000 and ran over 300 miles!
