Gladney is excited to announce that we have been chosen for the 3rd year in a row as an Official Charity Partner for the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon on November 5, 2017. We are grateful for this opportunity--it means a lot to us and to the women, children, and families we serve.
We are looking for 5 runners with the endurance, passion, and commitment needed to join our team. 2017 is Gladney's 130th Anniversary, so this is an extra special year to participate!
See if you meet the criteria!
- Gladney Baby, Parent, Sibling, Family Member, Birth Parent, Friend, or Staff Member
- Marathon runner
- Commitment to fundraise more than $2,500 to support Gladney's mission of Creating Bright Futures through Adoption (each runner on the team will get to choose what program within Gladney they would like their fundraising to support)
- Willingness to publically share your name, your Gladney connection, and your motivation for running as part of Gladney's team through pictures, social media posts, and potential media stories
- Ability to arrange and pay for all expenses related to running in the marathon other than the race registration fee, which will be paid for by Gladney. Expenses arranged and covered by the runner would include travel, lodging, meals, etc. The marathon is on Sunday, November 5, 2017. Race packets are required to be picked up by runners at the TCS New York City Marathon Expo, which will be open from Thursday, November 2nd to Saturday, November 4th.
