On Saturday, February 9th, Jamaican Olympian and National Record Holder Kemoy Campbell collapsed during the Men's 3000m at the NYRR Millrose Games.


As of this morning, Kemoy is in stable condition in the ICU at New York Presbyterian/ Columbia University Hospital. Thank you to everyone for your continued support. Kemoy is awake and talking. Please continue to keep him in your thoughts and prayers.


Kemoy will continue to be monitored and recover at the hospital for the foreseeable time. In order for Kemoy to continue receiving the best care and to offset mounting medical costs, we are asking for donations to help support him and his family during this challenging time. Any donation made to help Kemoy on his road to recovery is greatly appreciated.

Kemoy and his family are very grateful for the overwhelming support and outreach. The Campbell family would also like to express their gratitude for the team of doctors at New York Presbyterian/ Columbia University Hospital and the quick response of The Armory's on-site medical professionals and doctors who assisted Kemoy and for the outpouring of support from the track and field community.
