For the first time in its nearly 45 year history, Association to Benefit Children (ABC) is running the TCS New York City Marathon! We have a fantastic team of runners, each with a special connection to ABC and unparalleled drive to raise money to support the essential work we do.
ABC's vision is for all children to have a healthy, safe life filled with joy, learning, and love in a nurturing family. A champion for all children, ABC strives toward this vision by creating comprehensive, responsive programs to meet the needs of New York City’s most vulnerable children and families. Since its founding in 1986, ABC has served children struggling with the complex issues of poverty - hunger, intergenerational trauma, emotional and physical abuse, lack of educational opportunity, and homelessness - and who have disabilities or developmental delays. As the causes and complications of poverty change, so, too, does the organization. ABC continuously adapts its programs to meet the unique needs of each child.
