The New York Road Runners announced yesterday that the 2012 ING New York City marathon will proceed as planned this Sunday, November 4th. Ryan’s Run runners will begin making their way into the city today, as the 3,200 employees of Allied Services Integrated Health System wish them the best of luck for the 26.2 mile race of their lives.
Allied Employees Help New York City
“For the past three years, the New York City marathon has had, and continues to have, an enormously positive impact on Allied Services. Ryan’s Run raises funds for state of the art equipment and therapies for children and adults with disabilities in our region,” says Bill Conaboy, Esq., President/CEO, Allied Services. “We want to show our appreciation by helping our neighbors in New York City recover from Hurricane Sandy.”
Allied Services Integrated Health System will donate $3,200 to the NYC Mayor’s Hurricane Relief Fund; a dollar for every Allied Services employee. This corporate donation in no way draws funds from Ryan’s Run. The thoughts and prayers of the employees, administration, and board of directors of Allied Services go out to the thousands of families dealing with the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
Allied Services encourages friends and business partners in Northeastern Pennsylvania to donate to relief funds. The following three websites are three ways to help:
The marathon will be televised on Sunday, November 4th, on ESPN2 from 9:00 – 12:30PM and on ABC from 4:00 – 6:00PM. Those who wish to follow Allied’s runners’ progress online and via Twitter and Facebook, click here.
