Honoree: Dr. Norbert Sander (1942-2017) was the last New York City resident to win the NYC Marathon, in 1974. He later became the CEO and founder of the Armory Track Foundation. Under his leadership the Fort Washington Armory, which in the 1980s was being used as a homeless shelter, was restored and made it into a state-of-the-art track and field facility. It is now one of the busiest sports facilities in the country, with over 125,000 athletes competing each year. Approximately 2,000 high school students use the facility each week. The Millrose Games, which have been held annually since 1908, were moved here in 2012. (Rodriguez)
