In light of the recent and rapid onset of the COVID-19 crisis, my friends and I wanted to get involved and give back to the community while being respectful towards social distancing and other recommended safety measures. This is when we came up with a ridiculous idea: why don't we walk a full marathon?
Our mission is to first and foremost give all the funds we collect to the Houston Food Bank. The Houston Food Bank is a vital resource feeding 800,000 people a year and is now facing even greater demand. Any contribution towards the Houston Food Bank helps provide a meal towards someone substantially in need.
Secondly, our goal is to show that with a mission, anyone can make an impact amidst the ongoing disaster. We plan on making the journey on Saturday, April 18, and will create a documentary covering our walk. Together we can help the people of the Greater Houston Area make a swifter recovery.
