For the 5th year in a row, BronxWorks is thrilled to have a NYC Marathon team raising needed funds for essential programs.
The money raised will support our programs for children and youth in the South Bronx, one of the nation's poorest congressional districts. This includes:
--After-school programs and summer day camps for low-income families, benefiting both kids and working parents
--Programs to help teens successfully negotiate the challenges of adolescence and the transition to high school
--Academic tutoring and college prep to give Bronx youth access to the benefits of higher education for a brighter future
--Recreation and educational programs for children living in our shelters for homeless families such as swimming lessons, trips to museums and parks, and books of their own to read
