On Sunday, Ansell Grimm & Aaron partner Fred Raffetto celebrated turning 50 in style by completing the NYC Marathon. “Never in a million years did I ever think that I would run a marathon, nor did I ever have any interest or desire to do so,” Raffetto told the Asbury Park Sun prior to taking on the race. “This is going to take all that I have in me, and then some. It is the biggest challenge of my life, and I am ready to tackle it.”
In addition to marking a personal milestone, Raffetto used the race to raise money through Team For Kids, New York Road Runners’ Youth and Community Services program. The funds they raise provide free or low-cost health and fitness programs to kids who would otherwise have little or no access to regular physical activity.
