Each year, the TCS New York City Marathon inspires more than 50,000 people from across the world to pursue their goals on the course — and to run in support of local charities that help others reach their fullest potential.
As an Official Charity Partner of the TCS New York City Marathon, The Foundling has a dedicated team of runners ready to take on the 26.2-mile route on Sunday, November 4 in support of the 30,000 children, youth, adults, and families we empower each year through evidence-based programs that create opportunity for all.
We hope you’ll come out to support #TeamFoundling on race day! Here are a few ways to cheer us on this Sunday.
Know The Route
Runners will start in Staten Island, taking off in waves beginning at 9:50 a.m. They’ll be winding through all five boroughs from there (Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan and then the Bronx), until they reach the finish line back in Manhattan at Central Park. You can find the full course map online here.
