Dear Friends -

As many of you know, I have run a number of races over the last two decades. Never before, however, have I run with a purpose or goal other than to cross the finish line. On March 17, however, I will be running the Los Angeles Marathon Big 5K as part of "Team Maxie", and I hope that you can help me in this effort.

On July 21, 2011, one of my dearest friends, Abby Fleishman Leviss, and her husband, Ted, unexpectedly lost their son, Maxwell Judah Leviss. Maxie was just 9 1/2 months old. It is hard to put into words how special and loved Maxie was by his family and their friends. It is even harder to express how devastated and heartbroken they are since Maxie passed.

"Team Maxie" is hoping to raise money to plant a forest of trees in the Carmel region of Israel that was destroyed by fire in December of 2010. Israel is a very special place to Maxie's family. Abby and Ted met in Israel and later got engaged there; they hoped to one day bring Maxie to Israel for his bar mitzvah. Our goal is to build Maxie's Forest (and ultimately reach $100k in tree donations) so that, in addition to helping reforest this beautiful part of the world, a pillar will stand tall in Jerusalem memorializing precious Maxie forever.

Abby has created a blog: Please visit 'Missing Maxie' to get a glimpse of this little boy and what his family is experiencing. You will understand how much he is missed and how important it is to all of us that we make his memory a living monument.

Please help me. It takes only $18 to plant a tree. With your help, we can build a majestic forest to help keep Maxie's spirit alive forever, a living tribute to a sweet and beautiful baby boy.

I thank you for your time and appreciate your support. Maxie and his family are always in our hearts and minds. He is missed and loved every day.
