Jimmy Runs a Marathon

As some of you might know, running a marathon has been a personal goal of mine and was something I planned to do this year. Sunday, November 1st would have been the New York City Marathon. Even though the "in-person" event has been cancelled (it's now "virtual"), I'm going to give it a shot!

This is still a great opportunity to raise support and awareness for a cause meaningful to this city and I still intend on doing that. This has become increasingly important considering the challenges Covid has brought to our communities.  

To that end, I hope you'll join me in supporting the Robin Hood Foundation. Robin Hood is New York's largest poverty-fighting organization. They find, fund and create over 200 of the most effective programs to help 1.8 million New Yorkers learn and earn their way out of poverty. New York City has been the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic, and New Yorkers living in poverty will continue to be hit hardest. The Robin Hood Relief Fund  is helping New Yorkers by supporting the nonprofit organizations on the frontlines. 100 percent of donations will provide emergency support through food, housing, job security and more.


About the run

Date/Time: Sunday November 1st, 8:00 AM. Finishing ~ 12:00 PM. May adjust based on the weather forecast.

Route: Starting on the Brooklyn bridge, I’ll run over to Battery Park and then up the Westside Highway. At about 58th street, I'll cut in to do a loop around Central Park before retracing my steps to finish at the top of the Brooklyn Bridge.
