KCFit is the brainchild of KultureCity co-founder Dr. Michele Kong and NFL legend Tiki Barber to merge philanthropy with physical fitness through exercise, diet and community.


On Sunday, April 26, KultureCity broke the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the most people running/jogging online simultaneously, which was achieved during our "Stay At Home Race" for Autism during National Autism Awareness Month.

The race, which was hosted via Zoom, mobilized race-goers around the world, including noteworthy KultureCity supporters like former presidential candidate Andrew Yang and his wife Evelyn Yang, NBA All-Star Dominique Wilkins, Atlanta Hawks head coach Lloyd Pierce, MLB pitcher Glendon Rush, Ken Joeng of “The Hangover,” Noah Wyle of “ER,” Christopher Gorham of “Insatiable,” Renae Ingles, former pro Australian netballer and Kelly AuCoin, Stephen Kunken, and Daniel Isaac of “Billions.” Race participants hailed from the United States, Canada, France, Brazil, and Germany.

In addition, we raised nearly $14,000 to support children with autism and their families amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

Who is KCFit?

KCFit is a collective group of individuals who are fueled not just by the desire to be better runners, swimmers, cyclists or athletes, but to use their passion to promote acceptance and inclusion of everyone, particularly those with invisible disabilities, and sensory needs. Our athletes come from all walks of life, from professional athletes, to artist, musicians and working parents.

Raise funds while staying active

We will use the KCFit platform to fundraise for our Sensory Inclusive™ initiatives. This has a tremendous direct impact on promoting inclusion and sensory accessibility so that everyone can be included in everyday public activities such as visiting a museum, attending a basketball game, enjoying a music concert, or even just going to a restaurant for a nice meal.

The philosophy of KCFit is simple

We can achieve anything, even the impossible, one step at a time. It starts with having the courage to take the first step.

Join our runs

Running is about the journey that takes us to the start line. It is about showing up, toeing the line and running with our hearts, knowing that we are running for those who cannot. It is putting one foot in front of the other. And when we look back, we have climbed a mountain and crossed an ocean.

Michele Kong, M.D.

I spent most of my life being an athlete, so I know well the thrill of the arena. Running is less about the arena, and more about the journey... and in a marathon, that journey is both singular and collective. You're lost in your mind as your body endures but driven forward by the energy of those around you. Running takes passion! Running 26.2 miles for a cause, though, is all about compassion.

Featured Runner

Jack Knight

Jack Knight is a 27-year-old man on a mission to promote inclusion and change the world for individuals such as himself. Jack has autism and has significant difficulties with communication and sensory regulation.

One day, he indicated an interest in running and together with his parents, Diane and Greg Knight, completed a 5K. It was a hard 5K, with frequent stops, but step by step, they crossed the finish line. Jack then indicated that he wanted to run longer distances, with the goal of running a full marathon. Jack started working everyday with his run and strength coach, Kevin to build his endurance and to improve his overall physical conditioning. He learnt how to drink and eat while running.

Over the last 2 years leading to his debut Mercedes Marathon, Jack completed four half-marathons with his coach, and his family by this side. What is even more amazing is that Jack galvanized his community around him to run with him for inclusion and acceptance of all individuals with autism and other invisible disabilities. They are lovingly called Jack's Pack. For his first marathon in Feb 2020, 50 runners ran with Jack as his pack, and together they helped Jack achieve the impossible. He was told that he would never be a marathoner, and on that day, Jack proved to the world that with believe, and perseverance, nothing was impossible!
