Marathon Rap: Dru Ha Set to Run NYC Marathon

It will be a run to remember when Drew “Dru Ha” Friedman, Co-Founder & CEO of Duck Down Music, attempts to run the ING: New York City Marathon on November 6, 2011.  Dru, whose father Harvey L. Friedman passed away from Alzheimer’s this past January after a brave 9 year battle with the disease, has been training this summer to prepare for the 26.2 mile race.

Dru explains: “I wanted to do something extremely challenging in memory of my father and to raise awareness about this compassionless disease. Fans of Duck Down may not realize how instrumental my father was in assisting with incorporating and founding Duck Down.  While he was a respected real estate attorney, he had little legal entertainment background yet found the time to learn enough about the business to help negotiate our early contracts and offered unconditional guidance for Buckshot and myself.   To properly train for a marathon, I’m quickly learning it takes dedication, perseverance and sacrifice of your personal time.  All qualities my father exemplified;  it’s a fitting way to pay tribute to him.”

Dru will be running and raising donations with the NYC Alzheimer’s Chapter Team: “Run 2 Remember.   People can visit Dru’s donation page by clicking here.

In support of Dru’s run; Duck Down Music plans to release two exclusive songs created by select Artists from the labels roster.  All proceeds will be donated to the foundation.
