The NYC Marathon took place last Sunday, and what a race! The NYC Marathon is one of the most difficult marathon courses around. However, that didn’t stop a long list of celebrities, athletes and even royalty from training and putting on their running shoes to benefit a long list of charities.
Many people may recognize Pat LaFontaine as one of only three players in NHL history to skate for all three teams based in New York – the Islanders, Buffalo Sabres, and the Rangers. Prior to his career being cut short due to post-concussion syndrome, he had already set numerous NHL records, and off the ice he was changing lives through his charity work.
