In 2012, every single ING New York City marathoner and volunteer can unite to make this amazing event count toward the goal of raising over $1 million per mile.
Historically, the marathon has raised an amazing amount of money for charity with only a few thousand runners fundraising. Imagine the impact we'll have when the entire running community comes together to get involved. That day is here.
This year, New York Road Runners is partnering with CrowdRise to encourage every single runner to fundraise. You can get started with one click and we're going to make certain that being involved is super fun. You can raise money and join an official ING New York City Marathon Team or start your own fundraiser. There are no minimums and no requirements and all of the money you raise rolls up into the total amount raised and we're going to be relentless about fundraising until we get every single runner involved.
This is an amazing opportunity for the entire unified ING New York City Marathon community to raise way more money than ever and make the ING New York Marathon the most incredible fundraising event of the century.
**Starting a CrowdRise fundraiser does not guarantee you a slot in the 2012 ING New York City Marathon. If you need a guaranteed entry, you must contact the charity before setting up a fundraising page.**
