The bustling city of New York made way for one of the most powerful and inspiring events of the year: The ING New York City Marathon. Citizens from far and wide gathered this Sunday to run a daunting 26.2 miles on the concrete terrain of New York City. Avenues were flooded with avid supporters providing water, crackers and plently of cheering ! Amongst the many inspiring stories, one particular story hit home, our very own, Erin Creamer (Rebecca Minkoff Sales Manager) completed the run in an amazing 4hrs 53mins 10 seconds. It was the loss of her late father, Chris Creamer, that fueled her ambition to cross the finish line and provided an inspiring guiding light to Minkettes all over the world.
“This has been a true NY experience that I feel proud to have been a part of”
Today we recognized the 45,000 people who participated in the marathon and a grand congratulations to our very own Erin Creamer and Marissa Metcalf , Bloomingdale’s buyer. Here’s an astounding standing ovation to those who’ve conquered the big apple this past Sunday and defined “perseverance” !
