Spots Still Available to Run 2009 ING New York City Marathon With Team Reeve
Date:7/13/2009

SHORT HILLS, N.J., July 13 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation today announced that it has a limited number of spots available for the 2009 ING New York City Marathon.

The benefits of being part of Team Reeve include: personalized training plan from our team coach; running performance t-shirt; team newsletters; fundraising assistance and tips from Reeve Foundation staff; personal fundraising webpage and ongoing assistance with the management and maintenance of your site; runner's online discussion group; overall support leading up to race day; and multiple Team Reeve cheering squads along the course. Aside from the satisfaction of accomplishing such athletic achievement, you will run with the motivation of knowing with each mile marker you pass, your efforts will truly make a difference in the lives of people living with paralysis.

Recently, Matthew Reeve, son of Christopher Reeve and member of the Board of Directors of the Reeve Foundation, announced he will run the 2009 ING New York City Marathon as a member of Team Reeve. Matthew was inspired to compete on behalf of the 1.275 million Americans living with spinal cord injury.

In April, the Reeve Foundation released the results of the largest paralysis population survey ever conducted, which reported that 5.6 million Americans live with paralysis, 1.275 million of whom are paralyzed due to spinal cord injury. To honor this community, he will be wearing bib number 1275.

"We all know someone -- a brother, sister, friend, neighbor, or colleague -- living with paralysis," stated Reeve. "They are only one degree of separation from all of us. They live with a condition that affects their family life, their ability to work, and their capacity to enjoy even the most routine everyday activities that others take for granted."

In order to be considered, please visit www.ChristopherReeve.org/TeamReeve and fill out our online application. If you have your own entry and want to run with us, email TeamReeve@ChristopherReeve.org. The application deadline is Monday, July 20 at 5:00 p.m. EDT. For questions, please call (800) 225-0292.
