BENEFITING: REGIONAL FOOD BANK OF N E NY INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 17, 2017
The Regional Food Bank has been helping to feed the poor and hungry in our communities since 1982. It is the only organization of its kind in northeastern New York. The Food Bank collects large donations of food from the food industry and distributes it to charitable agencies serving hungry and disadvantaged people in 23 counties. From Plattsburgh to Newburgh, in urban, rural, and suburban communities, the Food Bank provides over 30 million pounds of food a year to 1,000 agencies. On November 17-18, I will be (attempting to) run for 24 hours to help raise money for the Northeastern New York Regional Food Bank. Donations can be as small as $10 and you can make your donation anonymous. Please note that this is a flat, one-time donation, and NOT a per-hour or per-mile donation. Though my main objective for the event is to make a real-life impact locally, the competitive side of me wants to see how many miles I can cover during the 24-hour event. My personal best is 94.36 miles in 24 hours - will I perform even better this November?
