As you know, I promised to run the NYC Marathon every year until the day that I die in memory of my son Mateo who passed away in 2008. And I have done it so far, since 2009, this year its going to be my eleventh consecutive NYC marathon.
This year I’ve decided to run the 2020 TCS New York City Marathon with Team for Kids for the third time and I am asking for your support of their inspiring mission. Team for Kids is a team of adult runners who raise funds for critical services provided by New York Road Runners youth programs. These programs are designed to help kids of all ages and abilities to build confidence, gain motivation, and develop healthy attitudes toward physical activity that last for life!
Together, we can help nearly 250,000 youth across the country to live healthier, more active lives.

One of the most rewarding marathon experiences for me was in 2016 when I ran as an Achilles International guide for Lorena, a wheelchair athlete who I proudly now call my friend. Read the story of the 2016 NYC marathon here. Each year I hope to make a difference by supporting organizations just like Achilles International or Team For Kids.
Thank you for your support. See you at the finish line! The ultimate goal is ACTIVE KIDS!
