EVENT: 2017 TCS NEW YORK CITY MARATHON

Jennifer Gersch

THE STORY:

10 years ago, my Marathon Journey began when I first volunteered at the Start Village of the New York City Marathon.  A 3 a.m. wake up. For 30,000+ runners. 

 

You can read more about my experiences here:

In 2009, I kicked off my first 26.2 mile run. 

 

2017 will mark my 10th marathon. 

 

I am once again “running” a campaign for the Blue Card Fund, which supports Holocaust survivors in the United States. More info about Blue Card’s incredible work is available here:

“New York’s Biggest Block Party,” as it’s dubbed by NYRR Race Director and Co-President Peter Ciaccia, is simply an  event like no other. Bands line the route. Costumes fill the streets. Cowbells and choirs line the curbs.  

 

55,000 runners.  100 nations represented. 2 million cheerleaders. 

 

Start your own Marathon Journey on Sunday, November 5th.  Come out and cheer, or volunteer along the course.  I guarantee it will be one of the best experiences of your year.
