Get Your Poster Ready for Marathon Sunday

To help you prepare to cheer on Team NYJL and to inspire you as you get your poster ready, see how in the past our volunteers have shown their encouragement along the marathon route.

1. The Team Support: NYJL runners train together, motivate one another, and are working towards the same goal to support the community with their fundraising efforts. Cheering for the NYJL marathon runners is a great opportunity to show your support for them and the League as they race by the marathon route across the city.

2. The Group Effort: Five minds are better than one, right? When it comes to decorating a poster, absolutely! Get your friends together to have a poster making party.

3. The Personal Touch: After running for 20 miles, spotting their name and words of encouragement from a supporter will definitely help them get through the last stretch.

4. The Matter of Fact: Our 2017 runners committed to training for this 26.2-mile journey while raising funds to support the NYJL. They are truly amazing women and we thank them for their dedication to this important fundraising campaign. All the more reason to show our support!

Ready to show your support? Join the Affinity Activities Committee on November 5th to cheer on our NYJL Marathon runners! There will be 4 cheer stations along the course – Long Island City, Brooklyn, Upper Manhattan, and Midtown Manhattan.

Join us and sign up for your preferred location. All are welcome to attend and don’t forget to bring your poster!
