Hey Runners in NYC!I know that many of you are here from all over the world to run the marathon. As you've heard, the race is cancelled. Let's put those legs and good spirit to use.We are organizing an impromptu group of NYC marathon runners (and friends) to head over to Staten Island to run and distribute food and helpful items. All levels welcome! We plan to meet en masse at the Staten Island Ferry Terminal, 8:30 AM on Sunday morning. Please wear something with Orange if you have it so we can all identify each other (if you have it).If you each could bring a backpack that you can run with that could include:Non-perishable food

Pet food


Trash bags

Infant Formula

Warm Clothing

Baby wipes


Pre-paid cell phones

We will plan on running through Staten Island (routes to be determined) and distributing our supplies both in relief centers and door to door. My guess is the centers will be well stocked but there are many door to door people that will be in need of help.
