Literacy Partners is proud to be an official charity partner of the TCS New York City Marathon. Through this partnership, we recruit amazing marathon runners who agree to raise a minimum of $2,500 each and who represent us at the marathon every year.

The TCS New York City Marathon provides a powerful platform for our passionate charity runners to fundraise and raise awareness for causes that are close to their hearts. Every dollar that they raise supports our ability to provide free classes that help low-income parents to gain skills to create a better life for themselves while transferring important literacy skills to their children. Every year we look forward to supporting them throughout their memorable journeys as they train, and ultimately achieve their goal of completing this race, all while raising critical funds for Literacy Partners programs.

Our runners add meaning to their marathon one mile at a time!
