Team DK for the BX

I am pledging to run 1,000 miles in the next three months and am pledging to match each mile I run with a dollar donation and asking friends and family to consider donating too!

My name is Deirdre Keane. I am a nurse practitioner (NP), who was raised and is now living in the Bronx. The past few months, I have been dividing my time working between two pediatric ICUs, caring for both COVID and non-COVID patients as an NP and RN.   

I have seen firsthand the effects of this pandemic in the hospital and outside in the Bronx community. As front line workers, we are working around the clock to give the best care to our patients. However, no one should be worried about where their family's next meal is coming from. During this time of health and economic uncertainty, food insecurity needs to be addressed in our neighborhoods.

Running has always given me so much solace and I want to use that as a means to fundraise for the community. I am pledging to run 1,000 miles in the next three months and am pledging to match each mile I run with a dollar donation.

I am asking friends and family to consider donating whatever possible too. Thank you!
