No words can explain how incredibly proud we are of our Team JAF runners for tackling the United Airlines NYC Half Marathon for the first time! Despite cold winds, winding roads, and steep hills, Team JAF ran over 13 miles through Manhattan – from Central Park through Times Square to South Street Seaport – to raise funds for the emotional and financial support of cancer patients and their families.
We want to start by offering a huge congrats to each of our runners – Lorraine Reynolds, Brenda Reynolds, James Davis, Daniel Friedman, and Sandra Borzomi – for your training and fundraising efforts. After months of preparation, they not only successfully completed the race, they were able to surpass our $7,500 fundraising goal and raise $8,700+ for our financial assistance program. That means more than 12 families battling cancer can receive emotional and financial relief from the burden of daily expenses like mortgage, rent, and utility bills.
