Craig & Diane Barbieri Fundraising Page

Dear Family and Friends, 

We will be running in the NYC Marathon on November 7th 2021 for the Tisch MS Research Center in honor of our brother and sister, Donald and Susan. The center is on the forefront of finding a cure for Multiple Sclerosis (MS)!  Donald was a long time patient and believed the Tisch Center would someday succeed. As a trustee for the Village of New Hyde Park and speaker and lobbyist in Washington DC Don spent his life fighting for people who live with and suffer from MS. His fight lives on in us. Susan is a sweet, kind soul who has suffered from MS for over 37 years. She continues to fight this disease everyday. Her positive outlook keeps her ever hopeful that a cure is not far away and she will one day walk and dance again. Fifty years ago we were at Van Cortland Park running for the New  Hyde Park Road Runners Club. Flyers for the 1st NYC Marathon were handed out. In the car we laughed and said, "who would be crazy enough to run 26.2 miles?" Fifty years later - yes we are that crazy. Please help us support the Tisch Center and MS research. Any amount is greatly appreciated.  Thanks so much for your support. 

                                                                             Love Diane & Craig

We may have missed some people in our contact list. If you know of anyone who would be interested in contributing, please forward our message. Thanks again for your support. Fingers crossed we make it to the finish line on November 7th.
