BENEFITING: BOB WOODRUFF FAMILY FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
In 2016, every single TCS New York City marathoner, supporter and volunteer can unite to contribute towards the goal of raising funds for charities across the world.
Historically, the marathon has raised a massive amount of money for charity, and our goal is to bring the entire running community come together to get involved. When you run 26.2 miles for a charity, you are not only crossing the finish line for yourself, but for so many that will be impacted by your hard work and contribution!
New York Road Runners and CrowdRise are encouraging every single runner to fundraise. With hundreds of charities to choose from, runners can support a cause that is most meaningful to them. So this year, don’t just run for yourself; run for research, run for a cause, run for a cure and run to make the world a better and healthier place for all.
About the Bob Woodruff Foundation
The Bob Woodruff Foundation (BWF) is the nonprofit dedicated to ensuring that post-9/11 injured service members, veterans and their families thrive long after they return home. A national organization with grassroots reach, the Bob Woodruff Foundation complements the work of the federal government—diligently navigating the maze of more than 46,000 nonprofits providing services to veterans—to find, fund and shape innovative programs and hold them accountable for results.
To date, BWF has invested more than $30 million in solutions, reaching more than 2 million service members, support personnel, veterans and their families. The Bob Woodruff Foundation was co-founded in 2006 by award-winning ABC news anchor Bob Woodruff and his family, whose experiences inspired them to help make sure the nation’s heroes have access to the highest level of support and resources they deserve, for as long as they need them.
