Run for a healthier community

When you join Harlem United for the TCS New York City Marathon, you’ll be improving lives with a holistic approach.

For the last 30 years, Harlem United has worked tirelessly to address the issues and concerns of underserved communities in New York City. Our mission is to provide healthcare, housing, prevention, and supportive services to those most in need, fighting for our communities’ right to access these services equitably, without barriers of racism, stigma, or discrimination.

Each year, Harlem United engages over 9,000 clients across all of our programs, provides supportive housing for about 1,000 formerly homeless people, conducts almost 24,000 medical visits in its community health centers, and provides more than 15,000 hot meals and pantry supplies to low-income New Yorkers.
