New York, NY–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–October 25, 2005–José Joaquin Disla Binet is well known in the Dominican Republic as an accomplished athlete, and enjoys a great reputation in his community as well. An inspiration to the place he now calls home — Washington Heights in New York City — José’s friends and neighbors will be rallying behind him as he makes his fourth attempt at winning the gold in this year’s ING New York City Marathon on November 6.

José’s story is one of the human spirit. His passion for life is evident in everything he does, from the ever-present smile on his face to his participation in sports, including marathons. To date, José has competed in many world-renowned marathons — from Latin America to New York — and no matter what his time to the finish line, he always comes out a winner.

José is a man against all odds. Born with multiple birth defects and suffering an incident at the age of five that caused his legs to be amputated, he managed to overcome adversity and find the courage to become an international marathon competitor in his category.

Seeking out a healthcare company that would take great care of him, José enrolled in CPP in 2005. In Community Premier Plus, he found a healthcare company that provided exceptional healthcare and went the extra mile, sponsoring him for the race as well as fulfilling his ultimate dream of being able to walk by making it possible for him to have prosthetics. Proudly, the Community Premier Plus family will be among 2 million spectators cheering José on at the ING New York City Marathon on November 6, 2005.

Join Community Premier Plus Sunday, November 6, 2005 to support Jose Joaquin.
