We are excited to announce that Odyssey House has again been selected as an official charity partner of the 2021 TCS New York City Marathon!
We are thrilled to have the opportunity to bolster our team and bring more attention to our mission: helping New Yorkers in need overcome drug and alcohol abuse, improve their physical and mental health, and defeat homelessness.
We’d like to offer you the chance to join the Odyssey House Run for Your Life team at the TCS New York City Marathon in November.
Running for Odyssey House not only provides you with guaranteed entry, it also gives you the opportunity to change lives and give back to your community. For guaranteed entry, you must commit to raising a total of $3,000 for Odyssey House, which will directly support the men, women, and families in our programs.
That might sound like a lot to raise, but we’re here to help! We’ll support your fundraising with access to an easy-to-build online fundraising page that you can use to track your progress. We can provide you with sample text and team photos for your page if you need them. Once your fundraising page is complete, you share the link with your family and friends via email and/or your social media networks.
Your entry package includes an Odyssey House racing jersey, an invitation to our annual team dinner on the Friday night before the marathon, and twice-weekly training opportunities with Team Odyssey.
Learn more about Team Odyssey in this New York Times article from 2018’s marathon. And if you are interested in running with us on November 7, 2021, please contact Carolyn Abrams at cabrams(at)odysseyhousenyc.org or fill out this form. Thank you for your support!
