PENCILS OF PROMISE
This is the second year that Pencils of Promise runners will cross the finish line of the New York City Half-Marathon. Together they will train and raise funds, 100% of which will go directly to building schools and classrooms for those who need them most, as well as to our programs that focus on teacher training, student scholarships and community health.
