Meet Team of Catholic Charities NY -- the inaugural ING New York City Marathon team of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York.
By supporting our team and our runners, you will be directly supporting the St. Nicholas Project, a program that provides critical social services to families in need throughout the year. St. Nicholas Project services include nutritious meals, job readiness training, housing assistance, immigration and refugee resettlement counseling. In keeping with the story of St. Nicholas, the project's work has a special focus during the Christmas holiday season, when client families receive winter items of necessity such as blankets, coats, hats and gloves.
Our team is running to transform the lives of families in need. When you support their journey, you will also be helping our neighbors to live lives filled with dignity and hope.
Through a network of more than 90 programs, services and agencies, Catholic Charities provides help and creates hope for more than six million of our New York neighbors, non-Catholic and Catholic alike. Catholic Charities responds to nearly every human need, always with compassion and dignity.

Thank you for providing help and creating hope.
