David Kilgore Ran 100 Miles To Raise $10K for the NYC Health + Hospitals, Local Running Shops
Caught up with past guest David Kilgore to recap and explain why he ran 100 miles in less than 18 hours on Friday. He raised more than $10,000 for gift cards from local running retailers in New York City, which would then be donated to NYC Health + Hospitals to provide medical workers with supportive footwear while they work long days to combat the coronavirus pandemic.
The run was completed in 17 hours, 47 minutes and 47 seconds.
