Race For Charity

Right To Play has the unique opportunity to be a charity recipient of the 2012 NYC Half Marathon. As an organization, Right To Play has ten race entries to allocate to individuals who support the mission of the organization and are dedicated to helping our cause by meeting the fundraising minimum.

Fundraising Minimum

We ask that all participants meet a fundraising minimum of $1,600. It costs just $50 to provide sport and play programs to a child for an entire year, so entrants support 32 children by meeting this goal. Participants will be set up with an individual fundraising page and personal assistance to help them in meeting their goals. Fundraising ideas may include an online giving campaign, use of social media outlets, gatherings where you feature Right To Play, etc. Our goal from participating in the 2012 NYC Half Marathon is to raise enough funds to support 320 children.

Interested in joining Team Right To Play?

Entries will be allocated on a first come, first served basis – the deadline for entry is February 24, 2012. If you are interested in joining our team or have any questions at all, please contact us at info@righttoplayusa.org.
