Run the 2022 United Airlines NYC Half with Team NYDI!
If you’ve ever dreamed of running the United Airlines NYC Half, don’t miss your chance to join the return of this iconic race after a two-year hiatus! We are thrilled to announce that Destination Imagination of New York has joined the 2022 United Airlines NYC Half as an Official Charity Partner, and on Sunday, March 20, they invite you to join more than 25,000 runners from across the globe as they run 13.1 miles across Brooklyn and Manhattan—all while raising money to support New York’s DI programming!
New York Road Runners (NYRR)—the marathon’s presenting organization—has a long-standing history of partnering with both local and national nonprofits to raise valuable funds through charity races. As a Charity Partner of the 2022 United Airlines Half, Destination Imagination of New York has been granted five half marathon entries. In addition to receiving guaranteed entry, Destination Imagination of New York team runners will receive an exclusive team shirt and a customized thank you gift from our local participants. Destination Imagination of New York will also cover the race registration fees for all its runners.
If you are interested in running with the Destination Imagination of New York team, please submit your application here. Team runners do not have to be affiliated with Destination Imagination, so we encourage you to share this opportunity with all the runners in your life.
In exchange for entry, team runners are required to raise $1,500 for Destination Imagination of New York. Destination Imagination of New York will offer fundraising platforms and tools (including a team and personal haku fundraising page) and promotion on both social media and at our upcoming events. All funds raised from the 2022 United Airlines NYC Half will be put towards sustaining and growing the Destination Imagination of New York program. Applications will be reviewed and runners will be accepted on a rolling basis, so make sure to get yours in soon!
