Ex-Giants WR Toomer to run marathon

BY foxsports • June 16, 2010

Former Giants wide receiver Amani Toomer will run his first marathon in New York this fall to raise money for charity.

Timex will donate $1 to New York Road Runners youth programs for each runner he beats when he runs the New York City Marathon on Nov. 7. Toomer is believed to be the first former NFL player to enter the race since Lynn Swann finished it in 1993.

Toomer played for the Giants from 1996-2008. He ended his career with 668 catches for 9,497 yards and 54 touchdowns.
