United Way of Long Island is an Official Charity Partner of the TCS New York City Marathon.
United Way's TEAM MISSION UNITED is a dedicated group of competitive and recreational athletes who run to raise funds for Mission United, which supports the 95,000+ Long Island veterans and military members. This year, funds raised also support UNITED TOGETHER to support families who have been affected by the current health and economic crisis.
While the TCS New York City Marathon for this year has been cancelled, Team Mission United runners are continuing their fundraising efforts. Their journeys will culminate in a virtual run on Sunday, November 1, 2020.
Since its inception in 2016, Team Mission United runners have raised over $100,000.
MISSION UNITED is a critical program of United Way that focuses on supporting veterans’ services. This includes the areas of employment readiness & training, emergency financial assistance, case management support and housing development.
UNITED TOGETHER was established to address the needs of families affected by the heath and economic crisis.
