The 45th annual TCS New York City Marathon like others before it is a benevolent event created to raise funds for the support of charities (participants to make their choice) and Alicia Keys was among the notable others like
former tennis champ James Blake and Kevin Liles’ wife Erika Liles. The singer is participating in support of her own foundation ” KEEP A CHILD ALIVE”
She made the finish line with the recorded time of 5 hours and 51 minutes.
Nice! That’s a real woman’s worth.
Expressing her excitement, Alicia Keys had this to say:
“Wow!!!! What a day!!! We did it!!!! One foot in front of the other was my mantra! The LOVE that was out in NYC TODAY was OUTRAGEOUS!!!!!!! Thank you for every scream, every cheer, every piece of good energy you sent my way!!! You helped me so much today!! Big love to my @keepachildalive team and my partners @cole_cook @duanemclaughlin @gradyspivey @mommy_lady #JoshZ #Nyheike. I couldn’t have made it alone!!! If I can do it, so can you!! Whose down to try for a good cause in 2016?????”
