UPDATE: The 2020 TCS New York City Marathon is canceled due to coronavirus-related health and safety concerns.
The Cancer Research Institute (CRI) assembles a team to run the 2020 TCS New York City Marathon. Team CRI runners and donors help raise critical funds for highly promising cancer immunotherapy research all around the world. Last year, through the generosity of our supporters, CRI awarded more than $36 million to scientists at the world’s leading academic institutions, helping to create a Future Immune to Cancer™.
Team CRI is now full as all entries for the 2020 TCS NYC Marathon have been assigned. However, you can still support the Cancer Research Institute’s mission by fundraising. (Fundraising will not provide entry for the 2020 marathon.) Email Jasmine Lingard (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
WHY TEAM CRI?
The Cancer Research Institute (CRI) is the world's leading nonprofit organization dedicated exclusively to harnessing the immune system's power to conquer all cancer. Because of the pioneering research we have funded for over 65 years, cancer immunotherapy today is no longer a dream held by a determined few. New treatments based on decades of discovery are extending and saving the lives of some patients with some types of cancer. Join our team and help us make this a reality for all patients, with all types of cancer, sooner.
Benefits of running with Team CRI include:
- Guaranteed race entry
- Personal online fundraising page
- Access to fundraising tips and support
- CRI-branded team shirt
Registered Team CRI runners must commit to fundraising a minimum of $3,000 due in full by Monday, October 5, 2020.
In addition to the fundraising pledge, Team CRI runners are responsible for a $200 sign-up fee (CRI will cover the balance of the TCS New York City Marathon registration fees) due at the time of registration.
What if I don’t reach my fundraising minimum?
If you do not reach your fundraising minimum by the deadline, we will charge the balance as a donation to the credit card indicated on your recommitment form.
What if I cannot participate after I register?
Every team member who officially registers and obtains an entry through Team CRI is committed to reaching their fundraising minimum by the deadline regardless of any situations that may arise. Monies fundraised will not be refunded and entries cannot be transferred by runners.
These entries are vital fundraising opportunities for the Cancer Research Institute, which is why we ask everyone to commit to their fundraising goal when we assign the race entry to their name.
