A Message From Thomas

Dear Friends/Family,

Having completed the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon, Katherine has decided to join me this year as we both tackle the 2018 TCS New York City Marathon. We've both decided to raise funds for Team for Kids and I am asking for your support of their inspiring mission. Team for Kids is a team of adult runners who raise funds for critical services provided by New York Road Runners youth programs. These programs empower youth development and encourage healthy habits via running and character-building programs across the country.

Making a donation is easy! You can click on the 'Donate' button on this page to give through my secure fundraising site. You can also find information about where to send a check, or how to get your company to match your gift here! All contributions are tax-deductible.

Your giving helps New York Road Runners youth programs:

  • Serve 267,000 students nationwide - including 134,000 in New York City's five boroughs - through free NYRR youth running programs, events, and resources.
  • Engage students in long-term athlete development (LTAD), a lifelong journey that guides an individual's experience in sports and physical activity to develop healthy minds and bodies for life. 
  • Help build the next generation of athletes by supporting coaches, educators, and fitness leaders with the tools they need to make a difference.
  • Allow underserved communities and youth to gain interest in and gain a lifetime love for running much like many of us have.

Whether you are a runner, have worked with children, or have kids yourself, I hope you will join me to further this great cause!

See you at the finish line!
