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.
