Granderson attends NYC Marathon kickoff
Curtis Granderson is having a busy day. He was in Columbus Circle this afternoon, attending the ING New York City Marathon 2011 Opening Day.
Granderson was at the event to announce that his Grand Kids Foundation will field a charity team for the race for the second year in a row. He had a chance to catch up with eight-time Olympic medalist speed skater Apolo Anton Ohno, who was on hand to officially announce his participation in the 26.2 mile, five borough race set for November 6, 2011.
The lottery for entry, by the way, is being drawn today. I’m keeping my fingers crossed to run the race again this year.
