The NYC Half provides you with an opportunity to transform lives in a direct and meaningful way. When you run as part of an official NYRR charity team, you’ll receive guaranteed entry into the race as well as the opportunity to contribute to NYRR’s community mission.
Team for Kids, the premier charity of NYRR, is a committed group of adult runners from around the world who add meaning to their miles by raising funds on behalf of NYRR youth programs. Funds raised by Team for Kids members allow NYRR to provide free or low-cost school- and community-center based health and fitness programs to children who would otherwise have little to no access to regular physical activity. Currently, these programs serve nearly 130,000 children each year in more than 600 schools and community centers in New York City, nationally, and in Africa.
In addition to a guaranteed spot in the NYC Half, Team for Kids members receive an exclusive training schedule for runners of all abilities, weekly Team runs, VIP race day perks, access to exclusive Team for Kids running and fitness events, fundraising support and more.
