Fundraising guide
Online fundraising tools


Team Children of Peru participants are encouraged to set their own fundraising goals. The New York City Half-Marathon requires that charity participants raise as least $1,000, but why stop there? Every dollar you raise for the Children of Peru Foundation helps us fund our different programs for poor kids in Peru. We will use the dollars you raised to make a difference for poor children in Peru.

Please note that NYRR requires athletes gaining entry via charity partners to meet fund raising commitments. Applicants are required to provide credit card information as a guarantee. Failure to comply can result in entry cancellation.

"Can I join if I already have my entry to the NYC Half Marathon?"

Runners who have already registered for the race (lucky at the lottery...) and want to join our team so that they also can run for a cause are more than welcome!! We are asking for a minimum fundraising commitment (or a payment by the runner) of $250 to support our projects and also make a difference for poor children in Peru.
Email nychalfmarathon (at) childrenofperu.org for registration forms specifying that you already have your entry.

Why Run for the Children of Peru Foundation?

Since its creation, the Children of Peru Foundation has been working with several groups, association and NGOs to help poor children in Peru in the areas of health and education. We have built schools, we bought an ambulance, we are sending surgeons every year to provide free surgeries to children in need and we want to do much more.

Whether you finish in record time or just cross the finish line, your participation will have made a difference in the lives of hundreds of Peruvian children and their families.

Email nychalfmarathon (at) childrenofperu.org for more information and for registration forms. Please specify if you need a guaranteed entry or if you are already registered for the race.
