Run the 2018 NYC Marathon with CARE

Nov. 4, 2018 08:00 am

There is no feeling like standing at the foot of the Verrazano Bridge with Frank Sinatra’s New York, New York playing as the gun goes off and you begin your 26.2 mile journey through the 5 incredible boroughs of New York City. The music, cheering, and crowds will keep you going as you as you fight through the wall and ultimately run across the finish line in Central Park. You did it! You ran the TCS NYC Marathon!

This could be you on Sunday, November 4th, 2018.

Why run with CARE?

For starters, if you’re not already accepted into the marathon, the only way to gain entry is with a charity. Even better, by running with CARE, you’ll be helping women and girls around the world feel empowered. We know that girls who attend school delay marriage and pregnancy, are less vulnerable to disease, and are more likely to increase their own earning power in life. Your support will help open opportunities for women and girls by giving them the tools, resources, and skills they need to lift themselves, their families, and entire communities out of poverty.

Ready to run with CARE? Here’s what you need to know:

As a CARE charity runner, you will receive guaranteed entry into the 2018 TCS NYC Marathon on Sunday, November 4th, 2018. In return, you will commit to a fundraising minimum of $5,000 to be raised by Tuesday, October 16th, 2018, as well as pay a race registration fee to New York Road Runners (NYRR).

We’re here to get you going with:

  • A CARE racing jersey
  • Online fundraising page
  • Regular emails with fundraising and marathon training tips

If you have any questions, please contact Monica at or 646-301-4994. She’ll be running too and is excited to revel with you in the joys (and anguish) of training. It’s truly the best ever!
