Team Mission United has raised OVER $31,000.  

RUNNING FOR A CAUSE

United Way of Long Island is an Official Charity Partner of the TCS New York City Marathon. United Way's Team Mission United is a dedicated group of competitive and recreational athletes who ran 26.2 miles to raise funds for Mission United, in support of the over 97,000 Long Island veterans and military members. Since its inception in 2016, Team Mission United runners have raised over $150,000. 

In 2020, the New York City Marathon was cancelled due to the pandemic. Despite this, seven runners continued their fundraising efforts to support both veterans and Long Islanders affected by COVID-19, and completed virtual runs on Marathon Day. Runners from 2020 will continue representing Team Mission United while racing in the 2021 TCS New York City Marathon held on Sunday, November 7.   

This year, 10 additional runners will raise funds for veterans and families impacted by COVID-19 to compete in the New York City Marathon.
