Daniel’s NYC Marathon Fundraiser
I am running my first marathon!
First off, you should know: I do not run. I used to swim. But I definitely Do. Not. Run.
But when KultureCity asked if I would run the NYC Marathon on their behalf I immediately said, Yes.
Because accessibility and inclusion should be for All.
Because 1 in 6 Americans have a sensory need or an invisible disability. Did you know this statistic? I didn’t. (These include but are not limited to PTSD, autism, dementia, and strokes.)
Because I perform in venues where (hopefully) lots and lots of people gather to laugh and cry and commune and I always want that to be a safe space.
Because it was a bucket list item I didn’t even know I wanted to check off until asked.
Because the pandemic really hurt the city I call home and I hope to celebrate its resilience and honor those we’ve lost by running the five boroughs.
I hope you’ll join me in supporting this great organization.
