We Are NYC Virtual Queens 5k!

Hi everyone, hope everyone is staying safe during these unique times!

Our club has been staying active while practicing social distancing of course. We recently concluded our first virtual race, the Brooklyn Virtual Mile. Most of the proceeds for that race went to those impacted by Covid-19. One of our contributions was a $1,000 donation to City Harvest who is in dire need of donations to their food banks here in NYC. Our donation is estimates to feed approximately 1,400 hungry New Yorkers!

With that said, since our first virtual race was a success, we are now ready to open up our next race to EVERYONE!

THE PURPOSE:

The “We Are NYC Running Club – Queens 5k” will be run for multiple reasons! The first is for us to stay active and to continue practice social distancing during these difficult times. As an alternative to another virtual group run, this is designed to do something different and to reward everyone the runs it with a sharp looking medal honoring Queens NYC!

Further and most importantly, as mentioned above more than half of race fees collected will go towards helping those impacted financially by the Covid-19 crisis. The remainder of the fees will go to cover costs associated with medals and shipping of the medals.

Good luck at the “We Are NYC Virtual Queens 5k”!
