They say the average time to run a 10k is about an hour. And, although Vincent Yuen took 14 hours to walk just a little over 10k, he filled more than 100 bags of trash along Mission Street during the clean-up day he called “On a Mission On Mission.”
For the longest day of the year, Yuen organized a trash cleanup with some 35 volunteers. He started at Sickles Avenue, just north of the Daly City border, and ended at The Embarcadero.
Yuen, who now picks up trash full-time under the volunteer cleanup effort Refuse Refuse, organizes cleanups across San Francisco every week.
