We’re building our team for the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon and we want YOU! Last year was our best yet and our amazing team raised over $68,000 in support of our mission. Ask anyone who has run it in the past and they will surely tell you it was one of the most incredible experiences of their lives.
We invite you to tour all 5 boroughs of this concrete jungle on foot Sunday, November 5th. Whether you are a seasoned marathoner or a new runner looking to take on a challenge for something larger than yourself, now is the perfect opportunity! This is one of the most desirable, yet hardest marathons to get into, but through Keep a Child Alive you’re guaranteed a coveted spot.
Here are some of the perks of joining our team:
