Stamford, Conn. – Nov. 1, 2012 – Employees of Everyday Health, the leading digital media company for health and wellness headquartered in New York City, are running the ING New York City Marathon in support of AmeriCares on Sunday, November 4. Ashlee Davis, a video producer for EverydayHealth.com, and Diana Jerman, director of account management and production, are running on the first marathon team in AmeriCares 30-year history. The team, which also includes OdysseyRe executives Brian Young and Tom Bredahl and AmeriCares Leadership Council member Elizabeth Chandler, has already collected more than $75,000 in donations and continues to raise funds for the global and health disaster relief organization.
Davis, 24, a Warwick, N.Y. native living in New York City, said completing her first marathon will be an achievement in physical endurance, as well as a turning point in her life.
“AmeriCares is an amazing organization and I am very grateful to represent it and Everyday Health in this epic race,” said Davis, who learned about AmeriCares through the company’s partnership with the organization. “I’ve always wanted to volunteer, and running the marathon for AmeriCares is an awesome jumpstart to giving back.”
The AmeriCares team will join 47,000 runners competing in the world’s most famous marathon. More than 2 million spectators lining the streets of all five boroughs and a television audience of 330 million will cheer them on. This year’s event is expected to raise $35 million for more than 200 charities, including AmeriCares.
