Jim Porcaro at the end!

Volunteer Jim Porcaro challenged himself to run the 26-mile NYC Marathon today, and raised funds for us at the same time via his CrowdRise page.

Jim came in at 4:06:31, a little beyond his ambition of under four hours but the 59th Street Bridge incline is a cruel mistress.  You can continue to donate to his page up to a week after today’s marathon.

Thanks Jim!
