2018 TCS New York City Marathon: Team Foundling Runner Rebecca Pappas

The TCS New York City Marathon is happening on November 4, 2018, and we’re excited to be an Official Charity Partner again this year. We have a dedicated team of athletes ready to lace up their shoes and hit the pavement in support of The Foundling and the 30,000 children, families, and individuals we reach each year.


Rebecca joins Team Foundling after recently joining our Junior Board. She’s an avid runner who has run several marathons in the past, and decided to dedicate this year’s race to The Foundling.


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

As a new member of the Junior Board, I felt this was an amazing opportunity to meet others and spread awareness for everything that The Foundling does.


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

I have always been very passionate for raising awareness for children’s education and have spent my whole life volunteering and making sure every child has the opportunity to succeed.


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

I have always been a solo runner and I excited to run my fourth marathon with a supportive team!


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

Running a marathon is not an easy task but knowing that every early run and every sore muscle can help make a difference in someone’s life? To me that is worth it and hopefully others recognize that as well and show their support!
