This year, The Children’s Aid Society is starting a new tradition, partnering with the TCS New York City Marathon to further support the health and well-being of New Yorkers. As a Charity Partner, Team Children’s Aid has a committed group of philanthropic runners training to race the 26.2-mile marathon through New York City’s five boroughs, and raising vital funds to support the organization’s important mission.
Since 1853, Children’s Aid has sought to help children living in poverty to succeed and thrive. Today, we are teachers and social workers, coaches and health care providers. We know what it takes to ensure children grow up strong and healthy, and ready to perform in school and life: excellent education and health care, social-emotional support, and strong, stable families.
Childhood is a journey. At Children’s Aid, we promise to be with kids and their family every step of the way with the tools they need, when they need them. We do this at more than 50 sites in Harlem, Washington Heights, South Bronx, and northern Staten Island, reaching nearly 50,000 children and families.
Education is one of the most critical pathways to moving low-income children out of poverty, we are deeply committed to the goal of academic success for the youth we serve.
Please help us support the at-promise young people of New York City, and Team Children’s Aid, by making a donation towards our $25,000 fundraising goal. Every dollar makes a difference.
