NEW YORK, Nov. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- After the incomprehensible destruction of Hurricane Sandy, New Yorkers are attempting to continue their lives as normally as possible. Downtowners who live in the ghost town below 39th Street in Manhattan are taking advantage of friends' hospitality uptown. Children are out of school. With subway systems flooded, bridges closed, and traffic lights out of commission, getting around in the city has become nearly impossible, and walking has become a necessary form of transportation.
In spite of these setbacks, the ING New York City Marathon is scheduled to take place, as planned, on Nov. 4, 2012, and DASHA wellness & spa will be operating out of booth 642 at the ING New York City Marathon Health and Fitness Expo as a part of the support network for NYC runners.
Taking place at the Jacob Javits Center, the Expo provides marathon runners with resources and exposure to some of New York's preeminent fitness and medical service providers. Each visitor to the DASHA booth will receive one of 20,000 complimentary scratch-off certificates for Massage, Stretching, and PhysioRED sessions. DASHA's Medical Director, Dr. Darren Pollack, D.C., a veteran marathon runner himself, will be onsite to provide education and medical expertise to those running this year's marathon despite the odds stacked against New York and the surrounding areas.
DASHA wellness & spa has established itself as an industry leader in New York's health and wellness community and remains at the forefront of technological innovation. This week in particular, the DASHA team's priority is to serve as a source of relief for residents affected by the destruction of Hurricane Sandy. In addition to the services being provided to marathon runners, the center's Midtown Manhattan location will be offering discounted spa services and massage therapy to those in need of relaxation and treatment, especially volunteers and rescue workers.
Actively involved in NYC charity efforts, husband and wife Co-Founders Shannon and Dr. Darren Pollack consider it their duty and privilege as New Yorkers and business owners to give back to a struggling city in a time of need.
