How we came together as a community for a cause

  • Runners at the Harlem One-Miler

More than 400 people ran, walked, skipped, and jogged around Marcus Garvey Park this past Sunday at the second annual Harlem One Miler!

Our fastest runner finished in a blazing 4 minutes and 28 seconds. And our fastest female finished the course in just under 5 minutes and 26 seconds.

No less impressive were the more than 200 of you who walked and jogged around the course as a family!

We were honored to have Ida Keeling, who at 101 years old, set a 100 yard dash record earlier this year, lead our pre-walk stretch. In fact, it was more like a dance party, and she got everyone in the mood.

We raised $13,000 to provide meals to our neighbors who are hungry and job training to help our community become more self-sufficient. We also made being healthy and active more fun for everyone.

Please join us every Thursday evening at for our Harlem Gets Fit workout for all ages and abilities. More details are at harlemunited.org/harlemgetsfit
