Lucy DeNardo, Director of Development at the Alzheimer’s Association, says, “Since we were first selected as a charity partner in 2017, our runners have raised more than $1.2 million dollars to help families impacted by Alzheimer’s disease. We are grateful to them and to the TCS New York City Marathon for this remarkable support.”
“The TCS New York City Marathon serves as one of the world’s largest fundraising platforms supporting hundreds of charities and philanthropic efforts,” said Christine Burke, Senior VP of Strategic Partnerships, NYRR. “We are very proud to support the Alzheimer’s Association team and the incredible impact they have made to their communities as they raise important funds to support Alzheimer’s care, support and research programs.”
The NYRR Official Charity Partner Program offers an opportunity for nonprofit organizations to raise funds to support their missions and services. Participating charities can offer guaranteed entry to runners who fundraise on their behalf.
Since its inception in 2006, the TCS New York City Marathon Official Charity Partner Program has raised more than $400 million for more than 1,000 worthy nonprofit organizations across the globe.
