Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation
August 17, 2011

My husband and I were thrilled to participate in this run. My mother was diagnosed with bladder cancer at the end of last year and we ran in her honor. Also, my husband's mother lost her battle with throat cancer in 2004, therefore we ran in memory of her. We were so happy that the weather cleared up and there was no changes to the course. We ran the warning track at Yankee Stadium! Still can't believe it, but we'll have the picture to prove it soon!

The only complaint I have was there was a bit of confusion when we checked in for our bib numbers. We wanted to pick up our t-shirts before the run and we were sent to Gate 6 only to be told to go right back to where we had originated. We did a lot of walking back and forth, so we wound up just waiting until we finished to get the shirts. Other than that the day was magnificent and we can not wait to do it again next year!

The Great!
