#JFKDAY

In his inauguration speech President Kennedy so famously said, “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”
 
  To commemorate John F. Kennedy’s commitment to service, the City of Dallas has declared November 23 The President John Fitzgerald Kennedy Day of Service within Dallas County. JFK DAY will bring together thousands of volunteers for projects across Dallas County.
 
We believe that a city united together in service is a city that can change the conversation – the conversation about community, about love. We believe that we can even change the conversation about a city that was once called the “city of hate… the city that killed Kennedy.” We believe that one light in the darkness can make a difference. You are that light and together we will all make a difference.
 
The #JFKDAY campaign: [Run, Serve, Remember] brings together, under a united front, a series of two events: a 5K run and a Day of Service. Citizens of North Texas will run in their community, serve those in need in their community and remember the legacy of the man who originally called them to action. On November 23rd, 2013, the Day of Service, thousands of volunteers will participate in community service projects at over 50 cites across Dallas County. Many of Dallas’ largest companies, civic organizations, and educational institutions will participate in #JFKDAY. The Honorary Chair for #JFKDAY is Blake Mycoskie, Founder & Chief Shoe Giver for TOMS. For more information, visit http://jfkday.com
