Mariah Carey – “Hero” Petition

DOCTOR FROM HOMETOWN OF SUPERSTAR MARIAH CAREY WANTS SONG “HERO” DEDICATED TO LONG ISLAND’S TENS-OF-THOUSANDS COVID-19 HEALTHCARE WORKERS

A doctor from Huntington, Long Island, the birthplace and childhood home of Mariah Carey, wants her to perform her “Hero” dedicated to the Long Island healthcare workers fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.  Dr. David Buchin, Director of Bariatric Surgery at Northwell Health-Huntington Hospital, is launching a petition for the Grammy-Award winning artist to help boost morale and awareness for healthcare heroes. Huntington is among the hardest hit New York City suburbs, with thousands of cases of COVID-19.

Mariah Carey, a 1987 graduate of Harborfields High School, had to put her big 50th birthday (March 27) celebrations on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic. In 2001, in the wake of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, “Hero” became an anthem for the police, firefighters, and emergency personnel responding and helping America recover. Now, as America faces another crisis and acts of hospital heroism are spreading on social media, healthcare workers are worthy of the badge “hero.”

Man Runs for Hope, Respect, Love and Unity.

Man to Run Across North America from Los Angeles to New York to Champion Hope, Respect, Love and Unity for Americans and its Global Neighbors.

North America DNA Vol. Run

#HumanRace

#DNARUN #WeAreOne

Who Really Runs The Country?

Jonathon Prince does. As a visionary “Athli-vist” (athlete-activist), Prince has run over 8,000 miles through 24 states, inspiring hope and raising awareness for his philanthropic endeavors. In 2005, he launched Run 4 Relief with a 2,700-mile run from Los Angeles to Atlanta, stopping to receive the key to the city in New Orleans. The following year, his Run for Relief II took him on a 1,500-mile trek from Atlanta to New York City. Both runs raised money to support families displaced by Hurricane Katrina. In 2010, he created HopeOrDie, promoting the cause with a 3,000-mile run from Santa Monica to Washington, DC.

Now Prince is about to make his fourth cross country trek North America DNA Vol. RUN #TheHumanRace. This run is to champion unity, hope, respect and love for Americans and its global neighbors.

Prince felt compelled to make this run. He said, The times call for people to realize we are more alike than different and we all have potential to create shining moments that exemplify our highest selves and create the kind of world we all deserve to live in. I just want to do something that gets people to think about that”.

Prince will launch the run at the Santa Monica Pier, California on Saturday, August 26, 2017 at 7:00am PT and will run cross country 10-30 miles a day, 5 days a week for four and a half months, totaling 3500 miles to New York, with an expected arrival time between Christmas and New Year’s Eve.

The cities on the run route include Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Flagstaff-Sedona, Az., Albuquerque, NM. Dallas, Houston, Tx. New Orleans, Mobile & Montgomery, Alabama, Atlanta, Ga. South & North Carolina, The DC, Maryland & Virginia area, New Jersey and arriving in New York City. Supporters can track the run on Instagram at @iamrunner. Prince will pass through Christian, MS, where he received the Key to the city with Robin Roberts.

Students from UCLA, USC and Santa Monica College, Los Angeles area run clubs, Road Runners of America, Compton city officials and We ROCK kids, running group in Orange County have all been invited to the launch to attend and share the kick off moment.

Sponsors who have joined the movement in support include 23andMe, Clear Eyes, GoChef TechnologiesROCKSTAR Energy and Joint Movement.

With the wrapped DNA Vol. RUN support vehicle, Team Prince will visit community organizations, high schools, colleges & universities along the way to run with, make appearances at and speak to students, faculty and staff about his experience on the road and how DNA Vol. RUN can enhance the lives of all of us.

Prince, who is a new dad, is excited to have his young sons Miles (Age 4) and Chase (age one) cross the finish line with him in New York. He says, “This is my first cross country run as a dad. I didn’t have children on the last runs. I’m shopping for a really sturdy double stroller with jogger wheels that can withstand a mile run across the finish line with my kiddos. I’m going to get them baby goggles so the wind doesn’t bother their eyes. Its going to be so amazing to be able to tell them when they grow up that they crossed the finish line with daddy. This race is after all for them and all children. It’s for all of us really.”

Prince will make pit stops in cities across the country to rest, eat, say hello to old and new friend along the way. He invites people to join him for a warm hello along the trail or even to run with him part of the way for as long as they are able.

He says, “I hope to meet many people along the way. If I see you and you’re up to it, please run with me for a half mile. Or just wave as I run by. Say a prayer for me, it gets lonely sometimes on the road. If I make a pit stop in your town, let’s take a selfie and post on your Instagram, so we can inspire people together! Remember your greatness and that we are one. I’ll see you soon!”
