Congratulations to Team Mission United!
United Way of Long Island was chosen as an official charity partner of the 2016 TCS NYC Marathon, bringing together eight talented runners to represent us as Team Mission United. In addition to rigorously training for months preparing for the big race, these runners raised nearly $27,000 in support of Long Island military, veterans and their families through the Mission United program.
Thank you to all of the individuals, companies, organizations and groups who helped Team Mission United achieve their goals. Without you, this substantial accomplishment could not have been reached.
"It's been a wonderful experience from beginning to race day to post race day hand shakes and hi-fives.We should all be proud of ourselves. We started at mile 0 & finished at mile 26.2.

"The most satisfying part of all was knowing that I was able to make a difference in the lives of Long Island's veterans just by participating in the race.
