I am running the 2015 New York City Marathon to raise awareness and funds for City Harvest. Founded in 1982 as the world’s first food rescue organization, City Harvest is dedicated to helping feed the nearly 1.5 million New Yorkers facing hunger. City Harvest collects excess food from restaurants, grocers, bakeries, manufacturers, and farms, and delivers it free of charge to more than 500 community food programs across the city.
In addition to running marathons for the good people of City Harvest, I also lend my time a volunteer at several "mobile markets" in my Queens community and serve as a member of "Generation Harvest" - a committee of philanthropists who are passionate about City Harvest and its mission to fight hunger in New York City. This leadership group reinforces City Harvest's work through special events, as well as developing and supporting initiatives that raise money and broaden the organization's support base.
