New York City Marathon 2017

About the Event

The New York City Marathon has grown from a Central Park race with 55 finishers to the world's biggest and most popular marathon, with nearly 50,000 finishers in 2015. The iconic 42km course traverses the five boroughs of NYC with thousands of cheering fans and finishes in Central Park.

Each year a Jodi Lee Foundation team runs the New York City Marathon. This year, we are running in memory of Tracey Lee Diamond. Tracey tragically lost her battle with bowel cancer in 2014 at just 41. She was an avid runner and the New York City Marathon was something she never had the opportunity to do.

Tracey's twin sister, Tania Carey is our newest board member. Tania has overcome crippling grief to get herself back out on the running track, building up to this ultimate running event. Her journey from heartache has inspired and challenged her to raise awareness about the early detection of bowel cancer. 

Join Tania and the rest of The Jodi Lee Foundation team for this once in a life time experience.
