Every November, a group of NYJL volunteers and supporters will run the TCS New York City Marathon in support of the New York Junior League! They have committed to training for the 26.2-mile journey while raising funds to support the NYJL. Team NYJL has a collective fundraising goal of $59,000—all of which will support the charitable activities of the NYJL.
