The cancellation of the 2020 TCS New York City Marathon was disappointing. For the third year in a row, we had registered a Charity Partner team (this year with 10 runners) and were looking forward to celebrating the 50th anniversary of the NYC Marathon, along with the 20th anniversary of the wheelchair category. In recent years, the NYC Marathon has become our most successful fundraiser, and, especially this year, we were counting on the funds raised to support our programs in 2021.

Enter the Stay-Focused Alumni Marathon Push Team to save the day!

On November 1st, to commemorate the day the NYC Marathon was meant to take place, six Stay-Focused alumni have committed to pushing their racing chairs 26.2 miles in their respective locations. They will be outdoors, on a track, on rollers … whatever it takes to get it done and support Stay-Focused in this challenging year.

These alumni learned to dive with Stay-Focused in Grand Cayman and have supported Stay-Focused, as well as other charitable organizations, with grit and determination. They have competed in marathons, triathlons, Ironman competitions, and the Paralympic Games … and been actively involved in bringing awareness to the potential of all persons with disabilities both in Cayman and the US.

Highlighted below are the remarkable alumni who will bring their talent and energy to this year’s Stay-Focused Alumni Marathon Push 2020. I hope you will support their commitment to Stay-Focused and donate by clicking on this link:

Many thanks!
