Many people were up in arms earlier today when they heard that funds in New York were being diverted from cleaning up the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

Where exactly were these funds going??

They were going to the New York City Marathon!

Say whaaaat??

That's what apparently was going to happen.

Thankfully, the marathon was cancelled. Here was one of the early announcements about it on Twitter:

Former NY Ranger Mark Messier Running NYC Marathon For 9/11 Charity

Filed under: FitnessRunningCharityHockey

Mark Messier

In September of 2001, the New York Rangers were scheduled to hold training camp at Chelsea Piers in NYC and stay in the Marriot Hotel at the World Trade Center.

Fortunately for the 60-man roster, including NHL Hall of Famer Mark Messier, the dressing rooms weren’t adequate and the team was moved to Madison Square Garden. When tragedy struck on one of the darkest days in American history, the NHL team realized they could have just as easily lost their lives on 9/11.

Ten years later, Mark Messier is honoring the families of the victims who could not avoid perishing with the Twin Towers. The retired athlete is running the New York City Marathon on behalf of Tomorrow’s Children Fund, which benefits the wives and widows of the attacks.

Speaking on his commitment to giving back to the victim's families, Messier said:

Survivor Alum Ethan Zohn Is Training For The NYC Marathon Despite Cancer

Filed under: RunningCancerReality TV

Ethan Zohn cancer NYC marathon

This guy really is a Survivor!

We were so sad to hear that reality star Ethan Zohn's Hodgkin's Lymphoma is back after just 20 months, but are happy to hear his re-diagnosis doesn't have him down in the dumps.

Although Ethan admitted feeling angry, scared and even defeated upon learning the disease had crept back into his lungs, he is bravely moving forward with his life.

He already had his first chemo treatment and, fortunately, the side effects have been more mild this time around thanks to a new drug, as he explains:

"With this new drug SGN-35, they aren't nearly as bad as they were just lethargy, nausea, headaches for a little while."

Amazingly, the Survivor alum is STILL training for the New York City Marathon this weekend despite his cancer, continuing:

"Now I'm feeling good and I'm continuing to train for the New York City Marathon."

His goal is to remain positive and stay active, despite his illness. He wants the world to know that cancer does not mean you have to stop living your life, saying:

"I think in the cancer world, the general perception is that there are winners and losers. You either beat cancer and you win – or you don't and you die. But the reality of it is, I did everything in my power to beat cancer, and I did. But it came back. And that's okay, too. I'm not a failure. There are millions of people out there living with cancer and you can still have a fulfilled life. You can go to work, raise a family, charge forward. That's what I'm doing here."

Ethan is thankful for not only his friends and family sticking by his side during this difficult time, but his fans too, adding:

"It's good to know I have them by my side. The best part about going public with this is that I get the support of fans and people out there, too. And I think that really helped last time."

While he doesn't want cancer to define his legacy, it is a part of his life and he hopes to raise more awareness on behalf of others suffering as well, saying:

"I just want to let others who are living with cancer know that I'm right there with them, living each day of my life, hopefully bringing more awareness. It's who I am, and I wanted to stand up for what I believe in."

We believe you can beat this AGAIN too! Good luck throughout the rest of your treatment, Ethan!
