Let Me Run is proud to be an official charity partner of the 2020 TCS New York City Marathon.
In 2017, 2018, and 2019 our charity runner team, "Team Long Run," raised over $150,000 for Let Me Run, through the New York City Marathon's Charity Partner program. Thank you to all who participated! We're excited to participate again as a 2020 TCS New York City Marathon Charity Partner. The 15 members of "Team Long Run" commit to raising awareness and funds for our program, which enables us to continue to expand our reach across the country and fulfill our mission. We’re working to build a new generation of men by teaching boys to be their best selves through a character-development program powered through running.
"Team Long Run" has the unique opportunity – and responsibility – to provide support, inspiration, and leadership for our boys. Past members of "Team Long Run" seized this opportunity to spread the word about our program while raising funds to support us. For this we cannot thank them enough!
Like the New York Road Runners Club, Let Me Run believes, ”running takes your body, mind, and spirit to a better place. The simple act of putting one foot in front of the other and moving forward can make you healthier, happier, and more confident.” That’s why running is such a powerful vehicle for the lessons in our curriculum.
In addition to running, generosity has also been proven to increase health and happiness. "Team Long Run" combines the power of running and generosity. "Team Long Run" runners are a force for positive change in our society and demonstrate the core values of Let Me Run to our boys and our community.
