Naomi’s Marathon

Let me begin by wishing those of you celebrating this week, a Happy Hannukah, Merry Christmas, and Happy Kwanzaa.

I wanted to let you all know that my friend Naomi Wolf is running in the New Jersey Marathon on May 3rd, through a program called Team in Training, which raises money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. She is running in honor of both me, and her mother, Betsy, a survivor of non-Hodgkin Lymphoma.

Here’s an excerpt from an email she sent her friends and family that explains a bit more about her efforts and gives information about ways to help her fundraising efforts:

“As the world's largest endurance sports training program, Team in Training has done its part in trying to find a cure for cancer by bringing over 380,000 volunteers together and raising more than $900 million since its creation in 1988.

In order to support this wonderful cause, and to get me across the finish line, I need your help! Please make a donation to help me reach my goal of $2,600 to help advance LLS's mission. All donations are officially due by March 15, 2009. You can make a donation online at my website:
www.tinyurl.com/nwolfmarathon or you can mail cash or check (made out to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society) to my home address: 205 W 88th Street, Apt 11G, New York, NY 10024. Your donation is 100% tax deductible.”

Thanks to Naomi for taking on this huge challenge, and thanks to those of you who are able to support this important cause through your contributions.
