Team City Harvest: Virtual Marathon & Running Club
The TCS New York City Marathon represents the best of New York’s spirit—when all New Yorkers come together to support each other and cheer on their neighbors. Though we are not able to be together in person this year, the camaraderie is needed now more than ever.
As an eight-time Charity Partner of the TCS New York City Marathon, we are proud to announce Team City Harvest: Virtual Marathon & Running Club, a virtual fundraising team for New Yorkers helping New Yorkers. We have set an ambitious team fundraising goal of $275,000—enough to help feed nearly 1 million New Yorkers for a day! At a time when more and more New Yorkers may not know where their next meal will come from, your help is vital.
Team City Harvest Runners may elect to run the official 26.2-mile TCS Virtual New York City Marathon from October 17–November 1, 2020, or participate in monthly virtual 5k and 10k runs. This year, even our youngest supporters are able to join in on the fun by participating in virtual 1 mile walks, as a Team Junior Harvest Running Club Member, with their friends and family! Corporations are also invited to join Team City Harvest, and take part in all virtual runs and events. Corporate groups will also have access to custom sponsorships—including presenting opportunities, product integration, events, and more.
Team City Harvest Runners and Junior Harvest Running Club members will have access to exclusive team events coming up this fall, including virtual team runs and Wellness Wednesday events! Runners will be invited to participate in a virtual team run on Saturday, October 10, and on Wednesday, October 14, runners will have the opportunity to cook alongside Chef Geoffrey Zakarian, City Harvest Board Member and Food Council Chair, alongside his daughters Anna and Madeline in fun, healthy, virtual cooking demo.
In November, City Harvest will host a Wellness Wednesday workout session hosted by Generation Harvest in partnership with Good Day Pilates, featuring a private running-focused strength class led by a professional instructor. The fun doesn’t stop there! Throughout the week of November 14 through November 21, Team City Harvest will host a Turkey Trot, a great opportunity to kick off the holiday season and get outside with your family or friends while supporting City Harvest’s work. Join Team City Harvest today to gain access to all of the amazing events hosted by City Harvest in October and November!
