Hockey Hall of Famer Messier to run NYC Marathon

NEW YORK (AP) - Hockey Hall of Famer Mark Messier will run next month's New York City Marathon.

The six-time Stanley Cup champion will take on the 26.2 miles Nov. 6 in the city where he captained the Rangers to their first title in 54 years in 1994.

Two of his teammates from that squad, Adam Graves and Mike Richter, have run the marathon in recent years.

Messier said Thursday at a ceremony at the Empire State Building that he was looking for a challenge after turning 50 in January and to raise awareness and money for two charities: the New York Police & Fire Widow's and Children's Benefit Fund and Tomorrows Children's Fund, which helps kids with cancer and serious blood disorders.
