Before we get into our story, we need to thank all of you who have been donating to our charity. Maybe it was just because you wanted to or maybe you are supporting one of our team members, either way, we really appreciate your generosity and your support!
Our 2011 ING NYC Marathon fundraiser is getting under way and we are ready to recruit runner's for Nick's Team. We have 25 spots to offer out, but those of you who have gotten a number through the lottery can join our team as well. The more the merrier.
If you want to join our team, click on Invite Team Members to the right and if you would like to make a donation, which would be great, you can click on Ask for Donations on the right as well.
It has been extremely gratifying for us associated with Nick's Fund to be involved for the last (7) years with the ING NYC Marathon as a Charity Partner. Our last involvement alone raised $62,000.00 from Crowdrise and other sources. And, the good news is, we will again have a team running in the 2012 race. Every year is special to us because we are succeeding in reaching our goal as stated in our mission statement. Won't you help us to continue Nick's legacy of helping others.

On this page, to the left are pictures of prior team members before, during and after their runs with the ING NYC Marathon, 2006-2011. The size of our team is small, however it allows the runners to get close with their fellow team members if they so choose. As you will see on Nick's website, we have a Pre-Marathon dinner each year. It is held on the Friday before race day, by that time we have a pretty good picture as to how well we have done with fundraising and the runners get a chance to meet and celebrate with each other. We get to meet many of the runners on the team, those we have been corresponding with for so long. It definitely is a great night. We have an archive where you can read about our recipients from year to year. We try to get them to the Pre-Marathon Dinner if we can. The team members love to meet them.
