For Jordan Fried, just finishing the New York City Marathon last Sunday was a significant achievement in itself.
But that accomplishment becomes even more meaningful because the Horace Greeley grad, who is a sophomore attackman on Hofstra’s men’s lacrosse team, was part of “Fred’s Team,” a group of runners devoted to raising proceeds for cancer research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
“The whole day was filled with tons of positive energy,” Fried said. “Everyone has their own personal goals and you have 45,000 runners and their families all supporting one another.”
The team’s name honors NYC Marathon co-founder Fred Lebow, who died in 1994 after battling brain cancer.
In addition to being a four-year member of the Greeley varsity lax team and earning all-section honors as a senior, Fried, a Chappaqua resident, also ran cross country at Greeley.
