It takes great passion and drive to train for a half marathon. It takes heart to do it for a worthy cause.

In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Michael Magro Foundation, Foundation board members Joseph De Sena, CFP, MBA, President and PrivateWealthAdvisoratSiena WealthManagement,andKatie Coleman, CFP, Managing Partner, decided to combine their love of running with their commitment to giving back. The two ran the Brooklyn Half Marathon with the goal of raising funds for the Foundation-supported Project SOAR (School Re-Entry and Ongoing Academic Resources) at the Cancer Center for Kids (CCFK) at NYU Winthrop. Their efforts were more than successful, resulting in more than $26,000 raised for the project.

"We are deeply appreciative of the Michael Magro Foundation's continued support and the efforts of their dedicated board members, who find new ways to make sure the best resources are made available to address the medical, academic and psychological needs of our patients," said Linda Sweeney, Pediatric Development Manager at NYU Winthrop.

This isn't the first time that Mr. De Sena and Ms. Coleman have run great distances for a great cause. The two have run more than five marathons and raised over $50,000 for the Foundation.
