This November, a team of dedicated runners will brave the chilly morning air in Staten Island to support Goodwill Industries of Greater New York and Northern New Jersey in the iconic TCS New York City Marathon.
Team Goodwill NYNJ runners will be raising money and awareness for Goodwill NYNJ’s mission to empower individuals with disabilities and other barriers to employment to gain independence through the power of work. All funds raised by our team members will go to support the agency’s commitment to creating work opportunities for individuals with all types of disabilities: intellectual, developmental, behavioral, and physical disabilities.
A social enterprise model, Goodwill NYNJ is also committed to sustainable business practices and protecting our environment. Since 2010, Goodwill NYNJ has partnered with the New York Road Runners to station volunteers along the marathon route, collecting hundreds of pounds of donated clothing shed by runners each year.
