Team IMPACT is a national nonprofit connecting kids with serious and chronic illnesses to local college athletic teams, forming life-long bonds and life-changing outcomes. Since its inception in May of 2011, Team IMPACT has matched over 1,700 children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses with collegiate athletic teams at 550+ schools in 48 states. These children are drafted onto local teams and are given the social and psychological boost they need to get through their treatments and beyond, while giving the student-athletes perspective and teaching them lessons in courage and grit that cannot be taught in the classroom or on the field.
On November 3, 2019, the GoTeam runners will make the journey through the five boroughs to raise funds so we can expand the efforts to match more children with collegiate teams across the country. Please support our runners for the 2019 TCS New York City Marathon by making a gift online. If you prefer, you can mail in your donation to Team IMPACT/Attn: NYC Marathon, 500 Victory Rd, Quincy, MA 02171. If you mail in a donation, please be sure to indicate which runner you are supporting. If you have any questions about the GoTeam, please direct your inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org
