After 2 years on hiatus, the United Airlines NYC Half is back on March 20, 2022! The half marathon, which has historically featured nearly 25,000 runners, will send athletes along a 13.1 mile course through Brooklyn and Manhattan. And for the first time, Team Foundling will be participating in this event! The lottery for guaranteed admission is now closed, but participants that run with a charity partner like The Foundling receive a guaranteed spot and other benefits. Join us in being part of The Foundling’s first United Airlines Half team!
In partnership with New York Road Runners, we are excited to sponsor a team of ten runners. Team members will be required to raise $1,000 to support our programs and services that benefit nearly 30,000 children, adults, and families each year. In exchange, team members receive guaranteed entry and other exclusive benefits, as well as ongoing encouragement from our Foundling community. Over the last 4 years of participation in the TCS New York City Marathon, Team Foundling has raised over $60,000 to support our neighbors on their paths to stability and independence, while having the opportunity to participate in their own life-changing experience.
As a member of Team Foundling you not only receive guaranteed entry to the United Airlines NYC Half, but benefit from a number of other perks including:
- Race entry fee paid in full by The Foundling
- A Foundling-branded, uniformed New Balance Tech Tee for race day
- Team building events and activities planned by The Foundling
- Access to digital fundraising materials and dedicated one-on-one fundraising support from The Foundling’s staff
Our United Airlines NYC Half Team is likely to fill up quickly – apply by January 31, 2022 to secure your spot!
