SI’s Peter King Raising Money for Team Gleason

Thanks to one of the NFL's most visible writers, the fund-raising efforts of former Saint Steve Gleason will get a boost Saturday.

Sports Illustrated and NBC's Peter King is running the Hamptons Half-Marathon Saturday morning on Long Island and is using the event as a fund-raiser for Team Gleason, which generates funds to create experiences for ALS patients and to build the nation's second ALS nursing home residence in New Orleans.

King's goal is to raise $50,000; as of Saturday morning, he was at nearly 90 percent of that goal. King will personally contribute $1,000 if he completes the half-marathon in 2:20 or less, $2,000 if it takes him longer.

King has written an in-depth story on Gleason for SI, and his TV feature on Gleason ran during last year's Super Bowl pregame show on NBC.
