THE STORY:

FIRST FLIGHT ALLIANCE wrote -

The Official First Flight Team for the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon has officially begun. It is our mission at First Flight Alliance to inspire first steps that grow stronger, healthier communities and what a better way for us to do that, than by partnering with the New York Road Runners, the world’s premier community running organization! We are extremely honored to have been chosen as an Official Community Level Charity Partner and believe that through the energy and passion that you will provide while bringing awareness to the First Flight organization, we will be able to strengthen our communities and inspire people around the world.

On behalf of First Flight Alliance, we appreciate the tremendous efforts of all our runners. However, to run a marathon takes ten times the effort, motivation, training and preparation in order to successfully, both physically and mentally, to complete those 26.2 miles.

Participation in the TCS New York City Marathon is contingent upon reaching the fundraising minimum and it is the responsibility of First Flight Alliance as an Official Charity Partner to ensure fundraising requirements are met. It is also up to FFA as an Official Charity Partner to also determine their fundraising terms, conditions and deadlines. First Flight Alliance, as all charity partners are required to use Crowd Rise for all fundraising related to the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon.

We will be sending up to five runners up to New York City to represent First Flight Alliance! This is an exciting opportunity for us but does come with some costs. The entry fee for each runner is $255.00. #RunthistownBIGAPPLE team members have committed to fundraising $3000.00for the First Flight organization. This is in addition to their entry fee.

The big questions is how can you get involved. On the following page, there are a list of different types of runners. They represent the levels of sponsorships and list the requirements for each.

We hope that you will considering giving and committing to serve our team of runners. First Flight Alliance and the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon runners appreciate all your support, encouragement and donations.

 

Our Inspiratoin for the OAK Scholarship Program 

"The Oak Tree is a symbol of strength and endurance, it's roots dig deep, providing it with a strong foundation to grow and withstand the test of time."  O.A.K's mission is to provide funding to children in our community who want to play sports and other recreational activities; we realize that there are many families who just can't afford the entire cost of enrolling their kids in these activities.  O.A.K will provide partial to full scholarships to help eligible families cover the costs associated with youth sports.  We believe that by simply planting a seed, we can grow a community of OAK Strong Children, providing to them a strong foundation for life!  -
