My name is David Kilgore and this month I’m partnering with On to give back to the city I call home. The holiday season is one of the hungriest times of the year for struggling New Yorkers, and the COVID-19 pandemic has only made this worse. That is why I am using my sport and platform to raise donations and awareness for the Food Bank NYC 5-Borough-Challenge.
On Sunday, December 13th I will be running across every borough in NYC, a distance of around 70 miles. I am running both to raise awareness for struggling local shops and gain donations for the people of NYC. The donations will go straight to FoodBank4NYC (https://give.foodbanknyc.org/campaign/5-borough-holiday-challenge/c310646) and it is my mission to surpass the fundraising goal in each borough. Bank of America will be doing a one to one match to further the impact. Let’s do what we can to help our neighbors this holiday season.
I encourage everyone to help in whatever way you can, whether that is through a donation or joining me on my run to raise awareness. You can join me in person or virtually through Instagram live and story. Be sure to tag me (@davidkilgore ), @on_running, and @lostboystrackclub.
If you are able to run, be sure to do so responsibly, wear a mask, and keep your distance from others. The run will start at 5 AM EST and you can find location updates on Instagram, @davidkilgore, and @on_running. Taking donations through 12/26. When making your donation please make note of which borough fundraising goal you’d like to contribute to!
Thank you all and see you out there!
Love Your City. Rep Your Borough. Help Your Neighbors.
