I still owe a few other race reports, but I'm letting this one jump to the head of the line. Tonight Jack Rabbit presented the Help Greg Fight Cancer 5k in Prospect Park. Nearly 1,000 runners showed up to support the cause. It's a great testament to the running community in NYC that so many people rallied around one of our own. And Jack Rabbit deserves a lot of credit for organizing the event, shutting all three of their stores for the evening, and putting on a great show. Even Borough President Marty Markowitz was there.
To give you an idea of the folks who came out in support of the cause, in addition to the Jack Rabbit crew, we saw Gary Berard, Terry Moore, Geoff Badner, Nicole Sin Quee with current student Tolu Edionwe and former student Matt Broach, Jeannine Bardo, Sarah Wenk, Hanna Jones, Scott Towle, Sarah Harrison, Francis Laros, Regina Cahill, Shane Neil, Nannette Vieth, Tom Buffolano, Danny Artiga, Dan Gallagher (and his adorable son Ian), Paul Leone, India Branch, Bridget McKenna, Anne, Perzesty, Beth St. John, Jene Shaw, Miriam Weiskind, Sarah Conway, Helene Roth, Bridget McMahon, Jesse Lansner, our Jack Rabbit Beginner and marathon classes and many more.
