Emily Faherty's ING New York Marthon Fundraising Page
Jun 13, 2011


As most of you know, I've been committed to setting personal running goals for the past few years. First, it was a 5K every month with my sister Claire. Then, I started adding a few 5-milers here and there. This fall, I was planning on running in my first half-marathon and thought that would be a pretty significant accomplishment in itself. But a marathon?! Eh, maybe someday ...

That was until AOL offered a unique opportunity to its employees to join Team In Traning and run in the 2011 ING New York Marathon. It was just too good to pass up! And that's why I'll be "racing to save lives" on Sunday, November 6 through the streets of New York City.

Welcome to my Team In Training home page!

For the next six months, I'll be training for the marathon as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training. All of us on Team In Training are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. I'll be running this marathon in honor of all individuals who have battled or are currently battling blood cancers, especially my good friend Sergio Morua-Martinez. I watched Sergio courageously battle Hodgkin's Lymphoma and cheered him on as he completed his first half-marathon through Team In Training in 2009. He will be a huge inspiration to me throughout this journey.

Please make a donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance LLS's mission.

And for all friends and family located in the tri-state area, I expect to see you cheering and shaking those cowbells on the sidelines on Sunday, November 6. C'mon, what else do you have to do?! I'll even let you take me out to eat after.

Thank you so much for visiting this page. Be sure to check back frequently to see my progress. And thanks again for your support!
