NYC Marathon for Mexico

On September 19th, a terrible earthquake struck Mexico leaving over 300 dead in what was the deadliest earthquake in the country since 1985's disaster. Mexico City needs our support to recover and continue life as usual. 

At the time of the earthquake, we were in Boston training for the NYC marathon and incredibly shocked by the terrible news coming from a country that is so dear to us. We were also impressed by the response of Mexico City's citizens whose immediate reaction was to volunteer in masses to help the most affected areas. 

This is why we ask you to help us raise funds to help Mexico rebuild its cities and come back to normal. Please make your donations to Project Paz (see link below) and we will run the 52.4 miles in your honor.
