Run for the Lung Association in United Airlines NYC Half marathon: Charity Runners Sought

(December 12, 2014)

The American Lung Association of the Northeast is seeking charity runners to support its lifesaving mission by running in the United Airlines NYC Half marathon on Sunday, March 15.  The Lung Association has four remaining guaranteed entry charity bibs available for runners who commit to raising $ 2,500 dollars each to support the Lung Association’s ongoing efforts to promote healthy lungs and healthy air.  Runners who have already gained entry to the NYC Half are also invited to join and fundraise with the American Lung Association of the Northeast’s 2015 NYC Half Marathon Team. Last year half marathon runners contributed nearly $13,000 to support the Lung Association’s mission of saving lives by preventing lung disease and improving lung health.

 “While the Lung Association has been a participating charity in the New York City Marathon since 2011, this will be only our second year as a participating charity in the New York City Half,” said Jeff Seyler, President & CEO of the American Lung Association of the Northeast.  “After being involved last year and having such a great experience, we knew we had to be involved again.  Those who ran on behalf of the Lung Association thoroughly enjoyed this race.  It’s a great opportunity for those committed to our mission to help bring us closer to realizing our vision of a world free of lung disease.”

Runners who choose to run on behalf of the American Lung Association of the Northeast will be heavily supported in their efforts to achieve their fundraising goals.  Each runner will receive a fundraising guide, monthly fundraising support calls, and a personal fundraising website. 

To inquire about joining the American Lung Association of the Northeast’s team, contact team coordinators Serena Arrabito sarrabito@LungNE.org and Rebecca Silver Fisher at rsilverfisher@lungne.org. Please indicate whether you are interested in one of our available charity bibs or if you have already secured entry and are interested in running with the Lung Association’s team.
