TEAM CATWALK FOR THE NEW YORK CITY MARATHON 2017 5th NOVEMBER 2017
For the third year in a row, the CatWalk Trust deputy chairman, Dave Pretorius, has taken it upon himself to cajole every friend, friend of friends, and business associate he’s encountered to join him in running the epic TCS New York City Marathon. As a result of his enormous passion and energy, Team CatWalk 2017 has grown to a crowd of 28 athletes and 8 supporters!
The CatWalk Team fundraising page is now live – you can read the stories about why these wonderful people have committed to running the NYM and raise funds for spinal cord injury research – and of course you can donate to the cause!
ABOUT THE NEW YORK MARATHON
The first New York City Marathon, organized in 1970 by Fred Lebow and Vince Chiappetta, was held entirely in Central Park. Of 127 entrants, only 55 men finished; the sole female entrant dropped out due to illness. Winners were given inexpensive wristwatches and recycled baseball and bowling trophies. The entry fee was $1 and the total event budget was $1,000.
CatWalk first had a team in the marathon in 2010. The tradition continues in 2017 and to date over $1.0 million has been raised by Team CatWalk since 2010.
