Our Debut at the United Airlines Half

Celebrating our first year as an official charity partner!

A Purposeful Journey

In our first year of participation, our nonprofit proudly joined the ranks of over 27,000 runners at the United Airlines Half Marathon. With only five spots secured, our team embarked on a journey to champion New York's youth, raising funds with every stride.

From Brooklyn's bustling streets to the serene expanse of Central Park, our runners symbolized our commitment to empowering the next generation through mentorship. Each step brought us closer to our goal.

Celebrating Success

The overwhelming support of our runners and donors has helped us to raise over $10,000 for our mission. A heartfelt thank you to our phenomenal runners whose dedication and fundraising efforts made this achievement possible. Your commitment to both training for the race and rallying support for our mission is truly inspiring. And to all who supported our runners along the way, your encouragement and generosity have not gone unnoticed.

Continuing Impact

Though the race is over, our fundraising efforts continue until March 25th, we invite you to help us reach our goal and shape a brighter future for the youth of New York. You can make a donation to our campaign here. With your ongoing support, we are making a tangible difference in the lives of young individuals in our community.


A Final Thank You

Our debut at the United Airlines Half Marathon marks a huge accomplishment for Friends of the Children New York, and an exciting step toward empowering youth and fostering positive change. Thank you for standing with us!
