If you are a marathon runner, consider running the New York City Marathon for charity. The Melanoma Education Foundation has been a New York Road Runners (NYRR) official charity partner for the past 13 years. It is our most important fundraising event of the year. It helps us cover our expenses so we can bring life-saving education into the classroom and through our website.

In 2024 NYRR mandated a minimum $3,000 fundraising amount required to run. We expect it to be the same for 2025.

We reimburse NYRR runner registration fees, provide personal NYRR-endorsed online custom training programs for first-time marathoners, free fundraisng pages where runner’s supporters can contribute, and complimentary pro-running shirts.

For more information on advance guaranteed entry to the 2025 NYC Marathon, please email or call Steve Fine at 978.535.3080. The cost is very low, there is no risk, and, if you subsequently win free entry through the lottery, your good faith deposit is fully refunded. There is no obligation and never any pressure!
