For the 9th year in a row, BronxWorks is thrilled to be a charity partner of the TCS New York City Marathon on Sunday November 5, 2017. Our team is making a big difference for Bronx children and youth and will be part of the excitement in one of the world’s most famous marathons!
1st step: Click here to register for our 2017 team!
2nd step: After registering with BronxWorks, you’ll be sent a link to create your personal fundraising page through the CrowdRise system set up by the TCS New York City Marathon. You’ll personalize your page by adding a photo or two, writing about why you’re committed to helping BronxWorks meet our mission, updating your goals, etc. You will also need to authorize CrowdRise to charge a credit card for the fundraising minimum. You can always log back in to update or edit your page.
3rd step: We’ll also send you a personal invitation code to officially register for the TCS New York City Marathon, sponsored by the New York Road Runners (NYRR). You must register for the race and pay the NYRR fees for processing and marathon entry directly through the NYRR website to secure your spot on the BronxWorks team.
The Legal Stuff: By joining our team, you are committing to the $2,500 fundraising minimum. You will need to raise $500 by August 15th to remain a member of the team. BronxWorks policy requires a $100 deposit donation from first-time BronxWorks fundraisers. This is 100% refundable upon reaching the $2,500 fundraising minimum, or can be applied to your fundraising total.
Last year BronxWorks’ 5 runners raised at least $2,500 each to support our programs for low-income Bronx children and youth, including:
♦ After-school programs and summer day camps for low-income families, benefiting both kids and working parents
♦ Programs to help teens successfully negotiate the challenges of adolescence and the transition to high school
♦ Academic tutoring and college prep to give Bronx youth access to the benefits of higher education for a brighter future
BronxWorks provides team members with marathon training plans to keep you on track with training!

BronxWorks is very thankful to all of our fantastic 2016 team members – Annika, Dayna, Genevieve, Michael and Schuyler – and the many supporters who contributed to improve the lives of Bronx children!
“Providing after-school and summer programs to low-income families, and tutoring Bronx youth is important to me because it can put at-risk kids on the right track.”
