Christopher Reeve's Son Races For A Cause

Christopher Reeve's 29-year-old son, Matthew Reeve, plans to run the New York City Marathon to raise funds for his late father's foundation, which helps people with spinal cord injuries, both the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation and the New York Road Runners have announced.

Come Nov. 1's Marathon Day, Reeve, a documentary maker whose films include those about his father, will wear bib No. 1275 – representing the 1.275 million people with spinal cord injuries.

Born in England, Matthew is the eldest son of Christopher Reeve and Gae Exton. He was 15 in 1995 when his father broke his neck during a horse-riding competition. In March he was present when President Obama signed the Christopher and Dana Reeve Paralysis Act – landmark legislation that promotes collaborative research, rehabilitation and quality of life initiatives for millions of Americans living with paralysis and spinal cord injuries.
