Literacy Partners is proud to be an official charity partner of the TCS New York City Marathon. Through this partnership we recruit dedicated runners, each of whom agrees to raise a minimum of $2,500 each to support our crucial mission of improving the lives of immigrant and low-income New York City families through literacy education. These passionate team members brilliantly represent this cause, our work, and themselves when they run the TCS New York City Marathon as a member of Team Literacy Partners.

The TCS New York City Marathon’s practice of recruiting nonprofit partners provides a powerful platform for passionate charity runners to raise funds and awareness for causes that are close to their hearts. Is Literacy Partners a cause close to your heart? Do you love to read and run? Do you want to support New York City families through your marathon?

Every dollar you raise as a member of Team Literacy Partners supports our ability to provide free classes that help low-income parents gain skills to create a better life for themselves while transferring important literacy skills to their children. 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. We’re so happy to be a part of their journey!

Support our 2019 marathon team today – every dollar raised makes a vital difference in the lives of our students and their families.
