All funds raised by members of Team 25:40 for the 2017 TCS NYC Marathon will be used to support orphans and vulnerable children in rural South Africa who are enrolled in 25:40′s after school care programs. These children receive a safe place to stay after school, a well-balanced meal, help with homework, health monitoring, advocacy and life skills – all with the Gospel as the foundation. Help us give these at-risk children a #FightingChance to survive poverty, disease and violence to reach their full potential.

The fundraising goal is $2,500 plus your NYC Marathon registration fee.  We will help you set up your online fundraising page on CrowdRise ( and guide you on your fundraising journey for the next several months.  Your fundraising will make it possible for at-risk kids in southern Africa experience a future free from poverty, disease and violence.  Thank you for running and dedicating each of the 26.2 miles to at-risk children.
