NYC Marathon Canceled due to Hurricane Sandy --
But HDSA Marathoners Come Through
Five Marathon-hopeful supporters of HDSA trained vigorously and took their fundraising just as seriously as they prepared for the 2012 New York City Marathon.
While devastation from Hurricane Sandy resulted in a cancellation of the race, the five fearless runners still raised $15,000 to support HDSA's programs to improve the lives of everyone affected by HD — and vowed to raise and race more next year.
David Christa, Jeff Dusek, Shauna Morgan, Adam Quinn and Tom Van Daele were prepared to attack the 26.2 mile course that winds through all 5 boroughs of New York City. While they didn't get the chance this year, they will all have the opportunity to participate in the 2013 NYC Marathon.
Jeff Dusek (below wearing the HDSA marathon shirt he customized) wasn't willing to let all of his training go to waste. He ran the Manchester City Marathon (New Hampshire) on November 4 instead and clocked a 3:54 personal best.
Our thanks to all of the runners and their supporters. We look forward to cheering them on in November 2013.
