Westborough – Akshay Saxena of Westborough will run in the ING New York City Marathon Sunday, Nov. 3 as a member of the Boston Children's Hospital Miles for Miracles Team.

Saxena noted it is his own 15-month old son who inspired him to sign up for the event.

“My wife and I were blessed with a healthy and beautiful kid last year, so we thought the best way to give back is to make a small contribution in helping sick kids get better,” he said.

According to a press release from the hospital, Miles for Miracles team members raise funds for Boston Children's Hospital's areas of greatest need: patient care; medical research; recruitment and training; and community health programs. Runners meet their fundraising goal through sponsorships, personal donations, and pledges from their families, friends, community, and co-workers. The program has raised more than $15 million for Children's Hospital since 1996.
