Team Mission United


United Way of Long Island’s Team Mission United is an Official Charity Partner of the TCS New York City Marathon to be held on November 1, 2020.
Team Mission United is a dedicated group of premier and recreational runners who will be taking on 26.2 miles for the more than 95,000 Long Island veterans and military families. Since its inception in 2016, team members have raised over $100,000. 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 this November. 
Mission United is a critical program of United Way that focuses on supporting veterans’ services. This includes the areas of employment readiness & training, emergency financial assistance, case management support and housing development.
