Join us for the 21st Annual Race to Deliver
God’s Love We Deliver provides nutritious meals to people in the New York City metropolitan area who are living with severe illness. For more than 29 years, God’s Love has been there for our New York neighbors so that no one has to fight the dual crises of being sick and hungry.
This year’s 21st annual Race to Deliver is more important than ever! God’s Love now cooks and delivers more than one million meals each year to people who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves. So join in the race to help raise awareness for those in need!
Live unofficial results are available during the race at liveresults.nyrr.org. Features include leaderboards, map tracking, and an individual runner search that can be shared on Facebook and Twitter. Tell your friends and family to follow your progress, and because the system works great on mobile devices, you can get unofficial results right after the race!
Use MTA Trip Planner to plan your trip.
