saturday night, pat, katie, my sister-in-law andrea, my niece, alexa, and my nephew, miggy, joined a 1000 other participants in the light the night 2 mile walk in nyack memorial park. the event raises fund to combat blood cancers. the walk is sponsored by the leukemia & lymphoma society - the same organization that sponsors "teams in training" for marathons and other endurance events.
this was the second year in a row that they did the walk to raise money for this worthy cause. last year i joined them in the walk. but this time around i was in queens, doing loops of juniper valley park in middle village, queens, at the ted corbitt 24 hour run.
here is the local coverage from the ny journal news.
