Going the extra mile
We are constantly amazed by the support we receive from our investors and community partners. It seems like people will do almost anything to help support our mission—even run an ultra-marathon. To celebrate his 50th birthday, Eric Zimmerman, a longtime supporter of DC Central Kitchen, decided to run a 50-mile ultra-marathon. As if that wasn’t a big enough challenge, he also wanted to raise $10,000 for DC Central Kitchen before the race. During these months of training, Eric rallied support from his friends, colleagues, and family, and by the time he crossed the finish line (after running for 10 hours!) he ended up raising over $15,000 for DC Central Kitchen! We are so grateful for the many unique and inspiring ways that our community supports what we do, and we will continue to use those investments creatively and strategically.
