1000K for Central New York Virtual Food Drive
Support the hunger-relief mission of Food Bank of Central New York through the 1000K for Central New York Virtual Food Drive.
Hello! My name is Amber Howland and I am a runner located here in Syracuse, New York. With local running races being postponed and canceled, I recently signed up for a virtual challenge to run a 1000K over the course of the next 110 days. That is just over 621 miles, averaging 44 miles per week, and about 6 miles per day.
I have decided to make this challenge a bit more interesting and a lot more rewarding for our community. During these uncertain times we are left wondering how we can help. While not everyone has the means to make an immediate impact on our community's small businesses and end hunger, each one of us can do something small. Small acts add up and enough small acts can leave a huge lasting mark on our community. Each day I will be logging miles with a sponsor from a local business. I will be representing them with swag whether it be a shirt or a hat. While highlighting local small businesses, I hope to support our local community! Just $1.00 provides three meals to our local hungry, elderly and children. Let's make this summer one for the record books both in miles and donations!
More information on the OneNY running challenge can be found here. There are over 5,000 registrants taking part in this challenge!
Thank you in advance for your support. Let's Do This!
A gift made through the virtual food drive will provide more food than through a traditional drive, doubling or even tripling the amount of items your dollar can purchase at a regular grocery store. Every dollar raised through this virtual food drive will be used to buy nutritious food for our hungry neighbors.
Too busy to shop? Skip and donate now!
