  1. I think it’s awesome that celebrities like Alicia Keys are doing these for a cause. It’s nice to see them use their reputation and following to help those in need.

  2. My daughter was in the sub elite and was waiting to run in the VIP tent and Alicia was in there along with so many other celebrities – I am glad the celebrities are raising money for great causes. My daughter ran and qualified on time – she had a friend that had to raise 5000 and didn’t so she had to come o up with the difference for the charity. I hope all the money really is going to these charities because it costs a lot to just enter
