#TeamHFNY Was Lightning Fast at the 2023 TCS NYC Marathon

Team HFNY marathon 2023 MAR24

For a third year, our 11 Team HFNY runners crossed the finish line at the 2023 TCS NYC Marathon on Sunday, November 5!

This year's Team was lightning fast—many completed 26.2 miles in under 3 hours! Our runners were so fast that our Cheer Squad, which usually meets on the Upper East Side, weren't able to capture all of them camera.

We want to recognize the incredible energy, stamina, and perseverance that every runner had this year. We couldn't be prouder of their accomplishment and their support of HFNY! Together, our runners have also collectively raised over $81,000 (and counting)—an astounding amount to continue our work and the work of our affiliates! 

We also hosted a celebratory, carb-loaded breakfast at the HFNY office the day before the Marathon. Some of our runners were from out of town, so this was the first time everyone met in person to swap stories and share running advice.
