The 2019 TCS New York City Marathon is the word’s most popular and biggest marathon. You can represent Make-A-Wish, and help grant wishes for children in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, The Bronx and throughout all of New York City, by raising $4,000. This 26.2 mile run gives participants an opportunity to perform an incredible physical feat on the largest stage in the world, all while raising money for a great, important cause like Make-A-Wish.

Other Ways To Benefit Make-A-Wish

Running 26.2 miles for a marathon isn’t for everyone, but you can still benefit kids in your community through Make-A-Wish. You can consider donating to a runner or a running team, or you can even donate money directly to Make-A-Wish.

The most excellent alternative to fundraising or donating money is car donation in NYC to Wheels For Wishes!
