Haynes family organizes run to honor relative, help underprivileged youth in Fresno

Sports

Yahoo sports NBA insider Chris Haynes and his wife Charlotte, both Fresno natives, are hosting a charity run this Sunday at Woodward Park to help fight gun violence and improve opportunities for underprivileged children in their hometown.

The run is taking place at 8 a.m. on Sunday, with tickets costing between $15-$25. You can sign up here at eventbrite.com, which will also give you an opportunity to debate Chris afterwards for a chance to win an NBA 2K20 care package.

Here’s more information from the event’s web page.

King Quinn’s Royal Run is in memory of our brother, Robert Quincy Lee Reynolds, who was murdered on September 11, 2016 in Fresno, California. Robert loved music, arts, gaming and sports. The run was created in hopes to bring both awareness to the gun-violence in the community we grow up in and a solution to impact that community through access to music, arts, tech, and sports by way of exposure to traveling, scholarships for camps/training in music, arts, tech, and sports and mentorship.

We aim to raise funding to create a busing program, a scholarship fund, and invest in causes with similar goals for the betterment of young men, women and families. We hope to promote self-love and restore a love for all mankind through our “I SEE YOU’ intiative.

King Quinn’s Royal Run is not only dedicated to Robert, but to all the loved ones lost too early to gun-violence.

***Immediately following King Quinn’s Royal Run, Chris Haynes — Yahoo Sports NBA newsbreaker and FOX Sports 1 panelist who frequently debates Skip Bayless, Shannon Sharpe and Jason Whitlock — will conduct a miniature sports debate panel where contestants will battle the NBA Insider for a chance to win an NBA 2K20 care package in which he’s featured on the best-selling NBA game series. Robert was an avid gamer. Only registered participants of the Royal Run are eligible to compete in the debate and the debate will be broadcast live on Haynes’ Facebook and Instagram accounts.
