Charity proceeds go to the local OAK Foundation of Anderson and the New York Road Runners
It is our mission at First Flight Alliance to inspire first steps that grow stronger, healthier communities and what a better way for us to do that, than by partnering with the New York Road Runners, the world’s premier community running organization! We are extremely honored to have been chosen as an Official Community Level Charity Partner and believe that through the energy and passion that you will provide while bringing awareness to the First Flight organization, we will be able to strengthen our communities and inspire people around the world.
On behalf of First Flight Alliance, we appreciate the tremendous efforts of all our runners. However, to run a marathon takes ten times the effort, motivation, training and preparation in order to successfully, both physically and mentally, to complete those 26.2 miles. Participation in the TCS New York City Marathon is contingent upon reaching the fundraising minimum and it is the responsibility of First Flight Alliance as an Official Charity Partner to ensure fundraising requirements are met. It is also up to FFA as an Official Charity Partner to also determine their fundraising terms, conditions and deadlines.
OPERATION ACTIVE KIDS SCHOLARSHIP
First Flight Alliance is on a mission to inspire first steps that grow stronger, healthier communities.
We do this by engaging the community in educational and fitness programs, organizing family friendly events that promote active lifestyles and providing opportunities for kids to be active through our Operation Active Kids, OAK scholarship program. The mission of the Operation Active Kids, OAK scholarship program is to provide funding to children in the community who want to play sports and other recreational activities.
OAK will provide partial to full scholarships to help eligible families cover the costs associated with youth sports. We believe that by simply planting a seed, we can grow a community of OAK strong children.
We will be sending up to five runners up to New York City to represent First Flight Alliance! This is an exciting opportunity for us but does come with some costs. The entry fee for each runner is $295.00. #RunthistownBIGAPPLE team members have committed to fundraising a minimum of $3000.00, although most have set their goals higher! This is in addition to their entry fee.
The big questions is how can you get involved. We hope that you will considering giving and committing to serve our team of runners.
