Join Team Guiding Eyes at the 2020 TCS NYC Marathon!

Guiding Eyes for the Blind is proud to be a partner of the NYRR Charity Partner Program at the 2020 TCS NYC Marathon. We have a limited number of guaranteed entries to this year’s NYC marathon. In exchange for a guaranteed entry, recipients will commit to raising at least $2,500 to support the Guiding Eyes mission.

All team members will receive a Team Guiding Eyes running singlet and are invited to join our monthly run practice in the park with our running guides team.

Spots are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications will be accepted until September 17, 2020, or until all spots have been filled – whichever comes first.

The 26.2-mile race takes place on November 1, 2020. Already qualified for the 2020 NYC marathon? You can still join our team and fundraise to support Guiding Eyes for the Blind! You will receive all the benefits of being a Team Guiding Eyes member, and you get to set your own fundraising goal.
