Long-time Mountain View resident and NYC Marathon runner Lynda Turkus was one of the 38,000 athletes on hand to witness Super Storm Sandy's terrible destruction earlier this month. When the race was cancelled Lynda made sure her original donations were delivered to Team for Kids.

She finished big, just in front of her house, amidst cheering well-wishers in a time of 6 hours 22 min. For donation info go to Submitted by Carla Kenworthy on Nov 20, 2012
