Fred Marathon 2020 Revised Route

fred MedalFred’s Message:

Dear Family & Friends,

As many of you remember, I ran the TCS New York City Marathon back in 2017. I had hoped to run it again this year, but the live race was canceled due to COVID-19. In its place, the marathon organizers are offering the opportunity for runners to participate in the race ‘virtually’ using the Strava workout app for accountability. I have decided to still run and use this opportunity to raise money for two local organizations that mean a lot to me – Dawn Treader Christian School and The Ben Landel Foundation.

Dawn Treader Christian School was founded 43 years ago in Paterson, NJ for the purpose of providing a top-notch faith-based education for students in Kindergarten through 8th grade. While the school enrolls children from all social, economic, religious, and racial backgrounds, they focus particularly on the needs of underserved students, providing a caring nurturing environment that meets the needs of the whole student – physically, intellectually, socially, and spiritually. It has been a privilege of mine to be involved with this school and help them raise much-needed funds that will go toward scholarships, new equipment, learning tools, and technology.

The other organization I have chosen to support is The Ben Landel Foundation. Since I will not be running the NYC Marathon through the 5 boroughs this year, I’ll be mapping out my route using streets in Wyckoff & Franklin Lakes with the plan to run the final miles on the track at Ramapo High School, where my daughter, Lily, attends now and numerous family members have graduated from.  It was only natural then that the other organization I am running to support is The Ben Landel Foundation.  Ben was a star athlete at Ramapo High School in both soccer and track. His athletic and academic careers were sadly cut short by a rare and very aggressive cancer.  After Ben lost his battle to this awful disease, his family began a foundation in his name for the purpose of awarding scholarships each year in his memory to students graduating from Ramapo and Indian Hills High Schools. To be considered for this scholarship, a student must be someone who leads by example and who exemplifies such characteristics as kindness, humility, honesty, courage, and loyalty – all traits found in Ben Landel.

The racing community has had to get creative this year during the pandemic since so many races (5ks, 10ks, ½ marathons, etc.) are used as fundraisers. Many of you have already donated on my behalf as I ran some ‘virtual’ races in support of charitable organizations near to my heart like Dawn Treader Christian School, Young Life, Oasis, & The Relief Bus. We have seen the impact this pandemic has had on nonprofit organizations as their needs have increased but their support has, in many cases, decreased.

Please use the buttons above to learn more and donate.

I plan to keep you all updated on my progress as I enter the home stretch of my training and ultimately run the 26.2 miles of this race on Sunday, October 25 (rain date November 1). I plan to start my Marathon at 6:30 am or 7:30 am based on the sunrise so I am not running in the dark) I plan to arrive at Wayfair Circle for 3 last loop at around 11:20-11:45 am since Ramapo high-school has been closed down due to Covid-19. Please come to support me if you can. Please visit my webpage for more details and information –  Donations will be accepted through Thanksgiving weekend.

Help me through inclusion, with integrity & purposeful generosity for the benefit of the Students at DAWN TREADER CHRISTIAN SCHOOL and RAMAPO & INDIAN HILLS HIGH SCHOOLS make a difference.

Thank you!
