Running Towards the Future Virtual 10k

These are unprecedented times that we are living in. Over 20 million US citizens are currently unemployed. Hundreds of thousands of small businesses have either temporarily or permanently closed.  Tens of thousands of those are restaurants and bars. With that as the backdrop, a culmination of centuries of oppression against our fellow black families, friends, and strangers has hit a tipping point.

And yet with all the negativity, all the division, and all of the hatred. Every day we see those who remain positive. We see those who heal the fractures. We see those who love. And yes, we are the majority, and we won't be silenced.

To combat police brutality and violence, we support: NAACP Legal Defense Fund 

To combat hunger for those who cannot afford a meal, we support: World Central Kitchen 

To combat the economic devastation that faces small restaurants and bars, we support: Restaurant Workers Community Foundation COVID Relief Fund

On July 11th, we, Daniel Velez, Mikey Kim, and Tim Koning, will be running a 10k on the streets of Washington D.C. to show our support for the three aforementioned organizations as well as the wellbeing of the future of the world in general. We invite fellow runners to join us for a virtual 10k while asking for a $10 donation (donation not necessary, please feel free to just run with us to show your support as well).

We appreciate any and all support even if it isn't financial and  will personally match all donations up to $500.

And please remember, we don't have to wait for a pandemic or a national uprising to create change. Change happens every day in all of our little actions. Let's try better to remember that moving forward.
