Be part of history - Run the 2021 TCS New York City Marathon as a Reach Athlete!

Celebrating its 50th year, the world’s largest race plans to return to the streets of NYC this fall and you could be one of them! Racing from Prospect Park to Central Park, you’ll experience all five boroughs of the iconic Big Apple. After dedicating countless hours to training and raising funds for families facing the financial barriers of cancer, crossing the finish line will be a personal victory with a powerful ripple effect.

Availability of entries is unknown at this time – applications will open if and when more information is available.

Push the limits. Persist through the pain. Power forward. It’s what Reach Athletes do. It’s also what our cancer heroes and their families must do as they face months of uncertainty and devastating financial barriers. Their courage and strength inspire Reach Athletes to train, overcome obstacles, and keep moving forward. Think you have what it takes?

Family Reach is an official charity partner of the 2021 TCS New York City Marathon

We help patients and their families combat Cancer-Related Financial Toxicity (CRFT). Basically, CRFT refers to the overwhelming costs that accompany a cancer diagnosis. Yes, there’s the growing stack of medical bills. But more than that, patients and caregivers often have to stop working during treatment. 

This loss of income, coupled with increasing out-of-pocket expenses, makes it difficult for families to pay their everyday bills (think: mortgage, gas for the car, groceries, Wi-Fi, and so on). And that’s where Family Reach comes in!
