Metro Detroit native Mara Reinstein is gearing up to run the New York City Marathon. The US Weekly staffer's motivation to run 26.2 miles is Lacey Holsworth. Princess Lacey, as she was known, made headlines for her close friendship with the Michigan State University basketball team and Adreian Payne. She suffered from a rare cancer, and lost her battle earlier this year, she was just 8 years old.
Reinstein is running to raise money for Dick Vitale's V Foundation for cancer research that helps children like lacey.
