From the mailbag:
I’m reaching out to you from the American Cancer Society’s endurance team, DetermiNation. Due to the cancelation of the 2012 ING New York City Marathon, we’re left with several unfilled spots for the upcoming 2013 Marathon on November 3rd. We’re reaching out to running clubs out of state and would like to invite any of your members to run the New York City Marathon with our team. We are a charity team, so there is a fundraising requirement involved, but our program director is willing to lower fundraising minimums and extend deadlines for anyone that signs up before the September 15th deadline. All DetermiNation team members will receive a personal fundraising page, as well as a fundraising mentor and a personal go-to coach to assist with both fundraising and training. We also offer benefits like race day access to VIP tents at the start, coaching support along the course, and pre and post race events. If you’d like any more information to pass on to your runners, or if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
