Would you ever do something crazy to raise money for charity? Like run a marathon? How about running two marathons straight? That’s what Marlins President David Samson is doing next Friday to raise money for 10 featured charities and to honor the workers who helped build Marlins Park.
With nine days remaining, today’s featured cause is “Run to Honor the Workers” charity of choice is The Jewish Federation of Broward County. The Jewish Federation of Broward County is committed to a vision in which agencies, synagogues, and organizations work in partnership.
David will run the first five miles of his run in honor of this carity and will be joined by Marlins President of Baseball Operations, Larry Beinfest, who has in the past completed the 2010 New York City Marathon.
Running 52.5 miles is not impossible, but something most aren’t willing to do. David is running to show that with commitment, challenges can be overcome. Click here to donate to today’s featured cause, or to any of the causes listed, to show you support David in his “crazy” venture!
