$1,650.00 raised
$2,500.00 goal
A MESSAGE FROM I'm running the New York City Marathon to support EJ Autism Foundation !
Thank you for a copy and paste to your social media:

The New York City Marathon is Sunday, November 6th and I can't wait. I have a short time frame and high goal to reach, but with you can help put me over the top.

EJ Autism Foundation creates autism awareness and supports programs and schools on Long Island that work with children on the spectrum.
Patrick Shields here, future member of the NYC Marathon "25/50/75 Club." I want to be the only person who has run the 25th running (1994), the 50th running (2021, pandemically postponed from 2020), and the future 75th running.

I'm running for All-American college track teammate and EJ Autism founder Beatrice Huste. 

If you know Bea, you know her tenacity, her running history, and her friendship. We all have a Bea in our lives, a local hero who relies on our support so they support others.

My goal is modest: run 4:45 (hey, I was a sprinter, this is not my wheelhouse) and raise $2500 for EJ Autism. The more you donate the harder I'll train. I'll do my best to shave five minutes off my best time (4:52:59) time for every $500 raised.

I encourage you to forward the link to this page:
