On March 17th, I will be running the New York City Half Marathon in memory of my friend Cara Becker. I am also running to raise money for Cara's Karma For Cara to help her continue her legacy.
Cara was known for her compassion and the relentless desire to change the world. While in the height of her illness, despite her pain and struggles, she created a way to pay forward the kindness shown to her by launching a source for helping others, Karma For Cara. By organizing blood drives and developing a fund, she used her story to encourage others to get involved, make a difference, and help change the future paths other people's stories may take.

You can stay updated on Karma For Cara, a non-profit that supports leukemia and lymphoma research and works to improve the lives of leukemia and cancer patient, here:
Thank you for supporting my efforts and for supporting Karma For Cara.
I look forward to seeing you in New York on March 17th!
