Join Team Children’s Aid Today - Support the Success of New York City’s Youth!

In 2016, Children’s Aid began an exciting new tradition by partnering with the TCS New York City Marathon to further support the health and wellness of New Yorkers. Team Children’s Aid, a charity partner of the marathon, is a group of philanthropic runners who collectively commit to raising funds to benefit Children’s Aid’s mission: to help children living in poverty across New York City to succeed and thrive. Since its founding, the team has raised nearly $75,000.

Children’s Aid is pleased to be a charity partner again for the 2018 TCS New York City Marathon on Sunday, November 4, and we’re looking for new teammates to join Team Children’s Aid! Each year, we welcome individuals and corporate teams to join us, regardless of how a bib is secured, whether with us, through the lottery, or the 9+1 or 9+$1K Program. Every dollar raised makes a difference!

To help our runners succeed, both in running 26.2 miles throughout New York City’s five boroughs and in raising critical dollars to help children and youth excel in school and beyond, Children’s Aid is pleased to offer support every step of the way along this exciting journey. Our runners will receive the following benefits:
