New York City
Friends of + POOL was named an Official Charity Partner for the 2023 United Airlines NYC Half, taking place on March 19, 2023. Our + POOL team members will earn a guaranteed entry in exchange for fundraising for our charity, supporting our programs such as free learn-to-swim for kids who need it most, adult learn-to-swim programming, riversweeps, and water stewardship initiatives as we work to democratize access to the waters that surround NYC!
Race participants will take on the 13.1 mile journey from Brooklyn to Manhattan including running through a closed Times Square (only 1 of 2 times it is closed each year!) before finishing in Central Park.
Charity spaces are limited and bibs will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis.
