Son of Christopher Reeve to run on behalf of 1.275 million Americans living with spinal cord injury

SHORT HILLS, N.J., May 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation today announced Matthew Reeve, son of Christopher Reeve and member of the Board of Directors of the Reeve Foundation, will run the 2009 ING New York City Marathon. Running as a member of Team Reeve, Matthew was inspired to compete on behalf of the 1.275 million Americans living with spinal cord injury.

To honor this community, he will be wearing bib number 1275.
