Forever At The Finish Line (eBook)
The Quest To Honor New York City Marathon Founder Fred Lebow With A Statue In Central Park
de Daniel S. Mitrovich
Sobre o livro
Forever at the Finish Line tells the remarkable and inspiring story of Daniel Mitrovich, a runner from San Diego, who had a goal of putting a life-size statue of New York Marathon founder Fred Lebow in Central Park. New Yorks Parks Commissioner Henry Stern said It will be easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than to put a statue in Central Park. It would not be easy for someone that lacked financial backing and who wasnt even a New Yorker to make this happen. But with the faith and blessing of Fred Lebow, the support of his family, and his own personal determination, he knew it would happen. His journey involved crossing the continent many times, securing the support of some of the most famous runners of our time, including Joan Benoit Samuelson, Grete Waitz, Alberto Salazar, Bill Rodgers, and Carl Lewis. He would ultimately gain the endorsements of some of the most powerful political people of our time: Presidents George Herbert Walker Bush and William Jefferson Clinton, Governor Andrew Cuomo, US Senators Alan K. Simpson and Al DAmato, Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, and thirteen members of Congress. Daniel Mitrovichs personal story will show you if you pursue a dream with the right intent you will be Forever at the Finish Line.
