I’m honored to be a member of Team NYJL this year and to give back to an organization that has such a positive impact in the New York community. As a first-time marathoner, I’m grateful for the opportunity to represent the NYJL and help fundraise for our community partners, especially my committee, Beacon to Broadway!
As a first time marathon runner I feel very lucky to have been chosen to represent the NYJL as a member of our marathon team because this race is now about more than my personal goals. I am able to raise money for our league and see a tangible result from my running.
I am so proud of the work NYJL does for the community and honored to be a part of Team NYJL and complete one of my top bucket list goals!
I couldn’t imagine making my marathon debut with a greater organization. It’s a privilege to represent such an iconic, historical group of women at one of the biggest, most meaningful events in New York City. In particular, I’ll be proud to run for my fellow Steps to Success committee members, who inspire me every day and are the hardest working people I know.

I am proud to be a small part of the legacy that NYJL has and continues to create.
The NYJL is such an amazing organization and we, as members, give so much time and effort to make sure we are giving 150% of ourselves to our community. It would be a shame to not share this with the world!
NYC native and first time marathon runner, I’m thrilled to be part of Team NYJL this fall! The work NYJL has done to improve the lives of women, children & families in our incredible city is inspiring and I am beyond grateful to be able to give back by running. As a volunteer on the Affinity Activities committee, that strives to build relationships and enrich the lives of others, I’m honored to represent NYJL, where I’ve volunteered alongside extraordinary women as well as found new friends and many meaningful opportunities.
I am proud to be running for Team NYJL. I am so inspired by the work of our volunteers and the real impact we have had in the community. I am passionate about so many of the causes we support and humbled by the thoughtfulness, dedication, generosity, and friendship of my fellow volunteers.

Junior League is such a special organization, and really provided me with a community and a place within a city that can seem so daunting and immense. I am proud to represent an organization that is made up of strong women that make it a priority to better the city of New York and help those that are less fortunate.
