THE STORY:

On Sunday November 5th, 2017 I will run my 26th consecutive 26.2 miler at the TCS New York City Marathon! As many of you know I started running this marathon in 1991 as a means of developing a healthier lifestyle, and I’ve run it every November since for the past 26 years. When I started working at New York Road Runners a few years back I learned about the free youth running programs and events that now reach over 215,000 kids in NYC and across the country. Inspired by the kids and the free running programs, I started to raise money for each marathon as part of Team for Kids, NYRR’s charity team that helps fund this free youth programming. 

As CEO I have the amazing opportunity to run with the kids who benefit from these free youth running programs and events. Seeing the smiles on their faces as they hand off the baton during a relay, cross the finish line of a race, or high-five their teammates is just incredible. This year New York Road Runners is launching a new youth platform called the Rising New York Road Runners, which will allow us to reach even more kids in a wider age range with activities tailored to age and ability. We are so excited about this new initiative and can’t wait to help and inspire more kids to get moving and healthy!

I am excited to run the TCS New York City Marathon this year once again in support of Team For Kids. Please join me in continuing to improve and expand New York Road Runners free youth running programs and events, including the Rising New York Road Runners platform, by making a donation. Here are what some of your donations may go towards: 

~ $10,000: Provide scholarships for 20 kids to attend summer running camp.

~ $5,000: Supports a public school team in NYRR youth running programs for an entire school year

~ $2,620: Allows 1 young woman to participate in NYRR's Run for the Future program and earn a college scholarship.

~ $800: Supports 32 participants in NYRR Open Run for a year

~ $700: Send one youth to running camp this summer

~ $400: Provides a certified coach to a NYRR Striders senior center

~ $200: Provides 25 kids transportation to a weekend running race

~$100: Offers 10 kids a Cross Country Race Experience

~$55: Helps fit and distribute running shoes to kids in NYRR's youth programs

~$26.20 Gives a kid in NYRR youth programs a year of running

Serving our youth is perhaps the most important way we at New York Road Runners fulfill our mission to help and inspire people through running, and we are so appreciative of your support!

Thank you for all of your support over the years, it means so much to me, and most of all to the kids that you are supporting!
