Dear friends and family,
I am running the 2019 New York City Marathon and have decided to run my first marathon in support of Team for Kids. I am asking for your support of their inspiring mission.
Team for Kids is a team of adult runners who raise funds for critical services provided by NYRR youth programs. These programs empower youth development and encourage healthy habits via running and character-building programs across the United States.
Making a donation is easy! Below this message you can give through my secure fundraising site. You can also find information about where to send a check, or how to get your company to match your gift here! All contributions are tax deductible and go directly to Team for Kids. Please contact me if I can help you process your donation.
Your giving helps New York Road Runners youth programs:
- Serve nearly 275,000 students throughout the United States - including 125,000 in New York City's five boroughs - through free NYRR youth running programs, events, and resources.
- Engage students in long-term athlete development (LTAD), a lifelong journey that guides an individual's experience in sports and physical activity to develop healthy minds and bodies for life.
- Help build the next generation of athletes by supporting coaches, educators, and fitness leaders with the tools they need to make a difference.
Whether you are a runner, have worked with children, or have kids yourself, I hope you will join me to further this great cause!
See you at the finish line!
