Join Us for the 50th TCS New York City Marathon!

Calling all runners!

Marathon Sunday, November 1, will be here before you know it and Team Children’s Aid is already off and running! If finishing the world’s largest marathon is on your bucket list for the new decade or if you are looking for an opportunity to fundraise for Children’s Aid, we invite you to join us!

This year, the NYC Marathon celebrates 50 years of running, 50 years of history, and 50 years of New York City coming together to support incredible athleticism, endurance, and global camaraderie of runners and spectators alike. Children’s Aid is thrilled to partner with New York Road Runners for our fifth consecutive year; and in honor of this special, 50th anniversary and the 50,000 children and families we support, we have set a goal to raise a minimum of $50,000!

  • Guaranteed entry to the 2020 TCS New York City Marathon

  • In-person and virtual fundraising support to help you meet and surpass your goals
  • Personal fundraising website
  • Social events to meet fellow runners
