Team Mission United


As the biggest and boldest marathon in the world, the TCS New York City Marathon brings everyday athletes from all 50 states and 153 different countries to the same 26.2-mile course as professional, world-class athletes. Together, inspired by the strength and courage of the individuals they run with --and run for-- these athletes embody the power of the human spirit.

For the eighth consecutive year, United Way of Long Island was selected as a TCS New York City Marathon Charity Partner. Since 2016, Team Mission United has raised more than $200,000 in support of U.S. military veterans and their families on Long Island. To participate in this once-in-a-lifetime race, each Team Mission United member made a minimum fundraising commitment of $3,000.

Help Team Mission United runners push forward on the road ahead by helping support one or more of them. Every runner has their own unique story for why they run.



By supporting Team Mission United, you’re helping to provide services and resources in career training, employment assistance and emergency financial aid to veterans and their families. The need for these services is particularly significant on Long Island as there are more than 80,000 veterans living in our communities.
