Star Mountain’s Advisor, Yacov Wrocherinsky participated in Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center‘s Half-Marathon on Sunday, October 2nd. The half-marathon celebrates the lives of two monumental figures in running history. Grete Waitz won the New York City Marathon a record nine times; her close friend Fred Lebow, former NYRR president and co-founder of the New York City Marathon, helped inspire the worldwide “running boom” of the 1970s and ‘80s and made running a sport for the masses.
Lebow and Waitz both lost their lives to cancer, but their legacies continue to move runners to dedicate their miles to the fight against the disease.
Great to see Star Mountain Capital team members out raising money for cancer research and making a difference!
