New York Road Runners Partners with the U.S. Fund for UNICEF on “Run for the Philippines” Initiative to Support UNICEF’s Emergency Relief Efforts

New York Road Runners is partnering with the U.S. Fund for UNICEF on a “Run for the Philippines” initiative to support UNICEF’s emergency efforts to aid children impacted by Typhoon Haiyan. NYRR will also match the first $26,200 in donations by members of the running community across the nation, it was announced today by NYRR president and CEO Mary Wittenberg.

NYRR to match the first $26,200 in donations made by running community

New York, November 15, 2013—New York Road Runners is partnering with the U.S. Fund for UNICEF on a "Run for the Philippines" initiative to support UNICEF’s emergency efforts to aid children impacted by Typhoon Haiyan. NYRR will also match the first $26,200 in donations by members of the running community across the nation, it was announced today by NYRR president and CEO Mary Wittenberg.

Through a dedicated “Run for the Philippines” page on Crowdrise, individuals may donate directly and are also encouraged to set up a fundraiser around their next run—be it an organized race in their  community (i.e. a Turkey Trot), an informal gathering of a dedicated running group or local club, or an individual run to raise money.

"The running community has a long history of responding to those in need, particularly around emergencies," said Wittenberg.  "Another of those times is upon us. Together with UNICEF, we can immediately help thousands of families affected by the devastation in the Philippines by doing what we do best—run. We welcome everyone to join in and Run for the Philippines."

Funds will go to UNICEF, which has been working in the Philippines since 1948 and is currently providing critical emergency relief to children and families in need, including airlifting medical kits, tarps, therapeutic food, water purification tablets, and other  lifesaving items to afflicted areas.

"The current situation in the Philippines is devastating, and UNICEF is working around the clock to help children and families affected by Typhoon Haiyan," said Caryl Stern, president and CEO of U.S. Fund for UNICEF. "UNICEF urgently needs funding to help rush lifesaving emergency supplies to the hardest-hit areas, including health kits, medical and shelter equipment, and especially water and sanitation and hygiene items to help prevent the spread of water-borne illnesses."
