Vanessa T. Marcotte Foundation - TCS New York City Marathon 2023
The Vanessa T. Marcotte Foundation team is thrilled to be a part of the 2023 TCS New York City Marathon! The event will be held on Sunday, November 5, 2023. The fundraising minimum requirement for our runners is $2,900, or $1,400 if you already have your own entry.

By joining "Vanessa's Team," you'll be honoring Vanessa Marcotte's memory and helping the Foundation realize its mission of violence prevention and safety awareness. The Foundation is achieving its goals through advocacy and education, and through practical self-protection training provided to thousands of people. Additionally, they support youth programs to address the root causes of violence. Vanessa was killed by an act of violence in 2016 while out for a walk.

Team members will receive a VTMF team shirt and swag, and personalized fundraising page, along with fundraising and marketing support and guidance, and correspondence from the Foundation. Training support will be provided via an App. All accepted runners are responsible for their own entry fee into the 2023 TCS New York City Marathon. Additionally, a $100 non-refundable team fee is required upon acceptance. The fee is to be paid to your own fundraising page and it will count towards your minimum and will set the tone for other donations. For application support, please contact
