Run to Read in the 2022 TCS New York City Marathon!

Join the festivities with Team Literacy Partners, and add meaning to your (26.2!) miles.  

Is literacy a cause close to your heart? Do you love to read and run? Do you want to support us in our mission to eradicate illiteracy in NYC by helping low-income and immigrant communities learn to read? Will you join our mission and champion literacy through your marathon?

Through this partnership, we recruit 10 dedicated runners who raise $2,500 each to support our crucial mission of improving the lives of immigrant and low-income families through literacy education. These passionate team members enthusiastically represent this cause, our work, and themselves when they run the TCS New York City Marathon as a member of Team Literacy Partners.

Every year we look forward to supporting our amazing Team Literacy Partners members as they train, and ultimately achieve their goal of completing this race, all while raising critical funds for Literacy Partners programs.

Members of Team Literacy Partners receive the following perks:

  • Guaranteed entry to the exclusive TCS New York City Marathon
  • Official Literacy Partners team t-shirt
  • Invitation to exclusive Literacy Partners events
  • Personalized online fundraising page
  • Customized fundraising support and promotion from our staff
