The First Annual
Anahid at the 2005 NYC Marathon
The First Annual Hamptons Marathon will take place on Saturday, September 29, 2007
The course runs through Amagansett, Springs and East Hampton with views of the Atlantic Ocean and Napeague Bay out to the Long Island Sound. This is the first new marathon on Long Island since the Earth Day Marathon in 1973.
On September 29, 2007, I will be running in my third marathon — the First Annual Hamptons Marathon! Each year I run for a worthy charity, and this year I am very pleased to be running for the renovation of Armenia Fund USA's Elderly Home in Yerevan, a retirement home for elderly bed-ridden patients. I learned of this project through a family friend Anna Kayaloff, who initiated the project and funded a significant part of it. It is close to my heart because I was raised by my grandparents, so the elderly have a soft spot in my heart.
There are many charitable organizations, including Armenian ones whose work is vital and should be supported. Any amount you can contribute to this project is greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance for your generosity and support and, please, send kind thoughts my way on September 29!
