Matthew Reeve to Run 2009 ING New York City Marathon for Team Reeve
Date:5/11/2009

dvocacy, the Reeve Foundation is racing toward the finish line: finding a cure for paralysis."

Wilderotter continued, "On March 9, 2009, when President Obama rescinded the ban on federally funded stem cell research, he referenced the poem that hung as a sign on the wall of Christopher Reeve's exercise room, which read, 'For everyone who thought I couldn't do it. For everyone who thought I shouldn't do it. For everyone who said I didn't have it in me. See you at the finish line.' Matthew Reeve will cross that finish line on behalf of his father and the millions of people who deserve care and cure."

"Matthew's decision to run in the ING New York City Marathon epitomizes everything this race is all about: the triumph of the human spirit against all odds," said Mary Wittenberg, president and CEO of New York Road Runners and race director of the ING New York City Marathon. "The first Sunday in November is always an uplifting day, and we're thrilled to join Matthew in celebrating his first race in New York."

Sharing his father's creative spirit, working as a producer and director, Matthew plays an active role at the Reeve Foundation. In addition to serving on the Board he is also a member of the Quality of Life Committee, which funds programs across the globe that help people living with paralysis become more fully integrated members of society. In this role, he follows in the footsteps of his stepmother, Dana Reeve, by reviewing and selecting grant requests from non-profit organizations that meet the unique and numerous needs of people living with disabilities. He also serves on the Foundation's Executive Committee and co-chairs the Champions Committee, bringing together young professionals to advance the Reeve Foundation's work.

Matthew will be blogging weekly about his training regimen, which will be posted on www.ChristopherReeve.org'/>"/>
