Most of us know Anne Vyalitsyna as supermodel Anne V from SI’s swimsuit issue, but this weekend she’ll trade in her two-pieces and body paint for running shoes as her efforts to raise money for people with disabilities culminate at the New York City Marathon this weekend.
I’ll be guiding Alexander Dmitriev from Russia for the first 4 and last 6 miles of the marathon. He got in a car accident at the age of 26 and will be participating in a wheelchair.
We are clearly in difficult economic times, but I promise, this donation is worth it, and every dollar, no matter the contribution … counts.
Achilles Track Club coordinates programs with both disabled children and injured former military personnel. Donations can be made from that website; so far Anne has raised $3,925.00. Well, 3,926 if you count my boner. Maybe I’m over-valuing that…
