The Journey Begins!

It’s official! I’m running the 2019 New York City Marathon. The first weekend in November will be the pinnacle of my 60th birthday year. I’ve run NYC three times before, and I intend this to be the last.

I dedicate this effort to the memory of my father, Norm Anderson, and I’m running with purpose – to raise funds for cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. The great folks at MSKCC treated Norm when he was first diagnosed with esophageal cancer and were instrumental in giving us over 15 more years with him.

Two good friends are joining me in this marathon effort. Alan “The Richmond Raptor” Hogan and Liz Ghezzi Steele, a renowned attorney here in Richmond, Virginia who was once known to the good people of Highland Park, New Jersey as “Lightswitch Liz.”

My objective is raise $7,500 for cancer research at MSKCC. It’s a lot of money, but with the your help, I am certain we can reach this goal. Here’s a link to my fundraising site at MSKCC — feel free to jump aboard right away. Stay tuned here for tales of our training adventures and join us on the journey to the NYC Marathon on November 3, 2019!
