Quincy Harris - “You Get More By Giving”

Legacy of Hope is proud to announce that Quincy Harris will be their newest board member. But the relationship between Quincy and Legacy of Hope does not start here. It goes back to March 30th, 2019 when Quincy Harris received a phone call from a friend of his, Christian Crosby.  Christian is the on court personality for the Philadelphia 76ers as well as the CEO of Live Life Nice.  But that was not what he called to discuss.  Christian was running a half marathon called The Philly Love Run the next day to raise money for Legacy of Hope.  After explaining what the money would be used for Quincy felt moved to accept.  See, it was almost 2 years to the date that Quincy tragically lost his mother to cancer.  So on less than 1 days notice Quincy Harris ran the Philly Love Run Half Marathon to honor his late mother.

While he has proclaimed himself to not be the greatest athlete, he was able to finish the half marathon faster than both his friend Christian and Legacy of Hope President Mike Rowe.  This sparked a great friendship between Quincy and Mike.  Mike has appeared on Quincy’s television show The Q on Fox 29 multiple times since that race to talk about Legacy of Hope,  including earlier in January just before this year’s Love Run when Mike promised to beat Quincy this time.  The two shared a back and forth on who would win but also some meaningful conversation about what Legacy of Hope does. Unfortunately due to COVID-19 we did not get to see the rematch but Quincy did laughingly say,

“Mike has another year to train to lose.  We are doing it for a good cause but he’ll never beat me.”
