Wyoming First Lady Carol Mead is running in the ING New York City Marathon November 4, 2012. She is running as part of a charity team whose mission is to reduce underage drinking and impaired driving.

She is running in the marathon with other Wyoming people on a team benefiting the charity Mariah’s Challenge. This charity challenges young people to stay alcohol free and to stay out of vehicles driven by someone who has been drinking. Students who meet the challenge and do not receive a Minor in Possession are eligible to apply for a scholarship. Mariah’s Challenge started in Montana.

Mrs. Mead said,

“There are many ways we in Wyoming can improve the lives of our young people. Matt and I believe reducing risky behavior is a key part of this overall effort, Mariah’s Challenge has come up with a great concept for keeping kids from using alcohol and I see many opportunities to bring a similar effort to Wyoming,”


New York Road Runners Director of Media Relations, Richard Finn notes that the marathon has a tremendous impact on charities nationwide.

“Last year the ING New York City Marathon raised $34 million for approximately 300 charities across the country, We are so excited to have First Lady Carol Mead running this year to benefit Mariah’s Challenge and just as excited to explore a relationship between the First Lady and the Marathon in the future.”


This year is the 43rd running of the ING New York City Marathon. There will be approximately 47,000 people participating. The race will be broadcast live on ESPN2.
