The New York Junior League is an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership. A group of dedicated volunteers and supporters will run the TCS New York City Marathon in support of the charitable activities of the New York Junior League. Team NYJL has a collective fundraising goal of $80,000, and every dollar raised will support the organization’s mission of improving the lives of women and children in our community.
We have more than 2,200 volunteers - of all races, religions, and ethnicities - who donate thousands of hours of service in the NYC community every year. We train volunteers to develop skills for community work, to serve on boards, and to be leaders. Team NYJL runners help us raise funds to advocate for the underserved, provide at-risk adults with tools for success, mentor young girls, provide nutrition and wellness education, and engage senior citizens.
