In response to the many hardships wrought by Hurricane Sandy, my high school homeroom-mate Eric Rubinson decided to organize a fundraiser that turned "Black" Friday into "Track" Friday. The goal is to raise much-needed relief funds for those suffering the effects of the storm. Eric, an avid marathon runner, set the tone by pledging to run a full marathon on our high school track if the growing team could raise $5,000 in donations. While many generous donations have already helped the team achieve that goal, the group is now continuing to push to raise as much support as possible for those in need.
The Ammon Family is happy to join in this effort. For our part, we will be running a collective QUARTER MARATHON on the track--that's about one lap for each day since Sandy made landfall. While Peter and Francesca plan to run the bulk of this distance, we will be grateful for any lap or two that Isabella can contribute. Note that we will not be deducting from our combined distance any lengths that Oliver may run in the wrong direction. :)
All funds our family raises will go to the Foodbank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties, where every dollar donated provides three meals. Thank you for any support you can offer to this valuable organization!
