We’re counting down to this year’s TCS New York City Marathon! The marathon is especially exciting because nonprofits like The New York Foundling have an opportunity to spread awareness and fundraise for their missions.
The New York Foundling is an official charity partner with the marathon, which means we have an awesome team of runners representing us and raising funds for our programs.
Jason, 33, of Goshen, New York, is one of Team Foundling’s official runners — and happens to be a part of our Foundling family, serving as director of investigations. We’re excited to have him on our 2017 team! Learn more about him below.

Q: What motivated you to run for The New York Foundling’s team in the TCS Marathon?
A: I have always wanted to run the NYC Marathon and when I saw that the Foundling had a team, I thought that it was the perfect opportunity.
Q: What makes you passionate about The New York Foundling’s cause? Why do you want to support it?
A: The New York Foundling encourages, supports and embraces individuals and families from all walks of life in an attempt to empower them. In my opinion, there are few causes more noble and worthy of support than that.
Q: What are you most looking forward to about this year’s race?
A: The training leading up to the race…
Q: Why would you encourage others to support you in this race?
