Run for Chinatown x SUBLIMA 跑 “Run” Pendant Necklace
We're kicking off Lunar New Year by giving back to the Chinatown community in a new way: Introducing the Run for Chinatown x SUBLIMA 跑 “Run” Pendant Necklace.
100% of net proceeds from this necklace will be donated to A Place For Kids, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded in 1971, whose mission is to provide quality cultural enrichment to support a child's opportunity to succeed by offering low-cost after-school programming for children of new immigrants and low-income families in lower Manhattan.
Led by Leland Yu, Run for Chinatown is an organization and running community that fundraises for New York Chinatown's residents and businesses. As of February 2022, it's raised more than $141,000 for local businesses and nonprofits, whose work spans small business relief, youth empowerment, neighborhood beautification and safety. Leland's family has lived in Manhattan's Chinatown for four generations. After the onset of the pandemic in 2020, he used his newfound running passion to fundraise for the community. On his first run, he set out to cover 60 miles in 12 hours and got friends and family to donate $1 for every mile. He ran 61.6 miles, raising $25,000, and seven months later he ran another 62.5 miles in 12 hours, which raised an additional $25,000. Since then, he's been joined by a growing community of Run for Chinatown runners who challenge themselves through the sport of running and collectively give back to the community. This necklace pendant is a replica of Run for Chinatown's logo, which combines the Chinese character for "run" with the English word (see it?). To usher in the Year of the Water Tiger, may it also represent what this year can bring: Strength, vitality, prosperity, agility and adventurousness.
Pendant available in recycled brass with sandblasted base and high-polished bail, frame and character
