Thank you for joining the International Medical Corps: Team First Responders. We are thrilled to join as an official non-profit team in the TCS New York City Marathon! Members of our team have not only committed to training for this marathon also made a commitment to raise money to support our lifesaving programs around the world.
For over 30 years, International Medical Corps has been a First Responder to disaster, conflict and disease throughout the world, providing lifesaving care to the hardest-hit groups – especially women, children and those displaced by crisis. At the first sign of need, no matter where, our Emergency Response Teams deploy to begin their lifesaving work immediately, even in the most challenging environments. After the headlines fade, International Medical Corps stays to help devastated communities regain hope, recover and build a better future.
Over the past year, International Medical Corps has been responding to the devastating Ebola outbreak in West Africa; violence in the Central African Republic, South Sudan and Nigeria; massive flooding in Malawi and the Balkans; escalating conflicts in Syria, Iraq and Pakistan, and the resulting refugee crises; and much more. Your generosity makes an immediate difference, and we will invest your contribution wisely. Every dollar helps donate food, medicines and supplies — multiplying the power of your gift which helps us save more lives. Through fundraising, you are helping us support our lifesaving programs around the world!
