Runners are insane motivators. That's why 9,423 runners and walkers crossed the Run for Haiti finish line last weekend in NYC, raising over $400,000 for the city's Haiti Relief Fund. It was cold, the sun was out and everyone was psyched to run. On race day, NYRR president and CEO Mary Wittenberg announced:
People said we were crazy to try to put this race together so quickly, and we said, ‘You don’t know runners.’ With our partners at Parks, we found an open date, and we all worked together to make it happen. (source)
