Team Mission United

Do you have a passion for running and helping veterans? Join Team Mission United!

Team Mission United is a dedicated group of premier runners who will be competing in support of both active military and veterans. These runners have varied connections to veterans, through friends, family, or coworkers, but all share a special bond to the veterans they are running on behalf of in the 2018 TCS New York City Marathon this November. 
United Way of Long Island's Mission United is devoted to providing critical programs for veterans as they transition to civilian life with a focus on employment services, education, financial services, health and housing support. Long Island has New York State’s largest veteran’s population and one of the highest concentration of veterans in the United States.
Team Mission United's goal is to raise $35,000, allowing us to continue providing veterans with emergency financial assistance, case management, PTSD counseling, education and other services. 
Runners on Team Mission United receive a custom team quick-dry shirt to wear the day of the race, have the opportunity to attend kick-off and 'fundraising finish-line celebration' events, and the opportunity to learn training tips from past and current team members.
