NEW YORK—The New York Road Runners donated $100,000 to the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City to provide 10,000 meals to frontline healthcare workers in the New York City Health + Hospitals system. Last week, they donated 20,000 pairs of examination gloves to the City. NYRR will continue to partner with the City to provide needed supplies to New Yorkers.

“Nowhere is the strength and unity of New York more apparent than at the New York City Marathon. I am not surprised the organization that puts together that tremendous event each year is stepping up to cheer on our healthcare workers from the sidelines and say thank you with this generous gift,” said Mayor de Blasio.

“Our valiant healthcare workers are serving our families, friends and neighbors under extreme duress and at risk to their own health. They deserve our unending gratitude. The generosity of the New York Road Runners will help sustain and support our embattled workers, and we are grateful for this partnership.” said First Lady Chirlane McCray.

“During these unprecedented times we must all come together to support each other and, in particular, our healthcare workers on the front lines who are risking their lives every day to help. For over 60 years, New York Road Runners has partnered with the City to help keep New Yorkers active through programs and events such as the TCS New York City Marathon. These events are made possible through the support of countless city agencies and doctors, nurses, emergency responders, and other medical professionals. They are our heroes and we are privileged to support them through the Mayor’s Fund and in other ways over the days, weeks and months ahead,” said Michael Capiraso, President and CEO, New York Road Runners.

“Community-based organizations are the backbone of this city, and the generosity of the New York Road Runners is evidence of that,” said Toya Williford, Executive Director of the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City. “NYRR’s willingness to step up and support our frontline hospital staff and first responders showcases the depth of our community ties.”

Additionally, this week Voss donated nearly half a million bottles of water to frontline health care workers, and Lavazza Premium Coffee donated 40,000 bags of coffee to 20 hospitals and medical facilities throughout the five boroughs. Apollo Global Management and co-founder Josh Harris also donated 100,000 N95 masks to Elmhurst Hospital.
