2018 TCS New York City Marathon: Team Foundling Runner Josh Grill

Team Foundling is preparing for the 26.2-mile TCS New York City Marathon on November 4, 2018. As an Official Charity Partner, The New York Foundling has a team of dedicated runners ready to run through all five of the city’s boroughs in support of the 30,000 children, youth, families, and adults The Foundling reaches each year through its work in child welfare, behavioral health, juvenile justice, developmental disabilities, and education programs.


This will be Josh’s first New York City marathon. Though he ran cross country in middle and high school, he recently started running as an adult and enjoys the meditative feeling of running long distances. He believes everyone should have an opportunity to succeed in life, which is one of the reasons he is running the marathon in support of The Foundling, its work, and its mission.


What motivated you to run for The New York Foundling’s team in the TCS Marathon?

The opportunity to support a good cause when running my first marathon. I live down the street from The Foundling location in Chelsea and have always been interested in the work they do.


What makes you passionate about The New York Foundling’s cause?

The work The Foundling does provides a direct and immediate benefit to people in need in my community.


What are you most looking forward to about this year’s race?

Completing my first marathon and setting a benchmark for me to improve from.


Why would you encourage others to support you in this race?

The contributions go to an effective and trustworthy charity!
