This is Kenny Chao’s third marathon and the second time he has run for the BFC team (he previously ran in 2015). His main passion is rock climbing, which he has been doing for over a dozen years. Although he gives up time from that to train for marathons, the trade-off is the ability to eat more ice cream without blowing up. Plus, he gets to proudly support such a great organization. Kenny attended Cornell University, majoring in hospitality management, and subsequently worked in the finance industry before doing a post-baccalaureate and joining the Downstate community.
