NEW YORK — Kevin Johnson will be thinking of his half-brother Christopher Reeve as he winds his way along the five boroughs of the New York City Marathon.
Johnson, who considers Reeve his "sports companion, mentor and hero," will join 56 other runners Sunday on Team Reeve, which is raising $300,000 for the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation.
It's one of scores of charity teams participating in the marathon, including Team LIVESTRONG for the Lance Armstrong Foundation. In addition, more than 5,000 runners are expected to raise $13 million for official ING New York City Marathon charities.
