Be a Friend, Run for Their Future

Join us on November 3, 2024, in New York, NY, and take a stride towards hope and opportunity. Every mile you conquer in the New York City Marathon isn't just a personal achievement; it's a step forward for NYC children.

As the world's largest marathon courses through the vibrant boroughs of New York City, with over 53,627 finishers, it's more than a race; it's a beacon of possibility. This year, we're inviting you to be part of something bigger. Run on behalf of Friends of the Children NY, a proud nonprofit partner of the TCS New York City Marathon, and turn your marathon journey into a lifeline for youth.

Fundraising with Friends of the Children NY means every step you take supports our unwavering mission to mentor and uplift children facing the toughest challenges. Your efforts will help us ensure that more children have the opportunity to thrive, breaking cycles of hardship and opening doors to new possibilities.
