“THE GREATEST RACE ON THE PLANET” (quote from a 2021 participant)

The TCS NYC Marathon Sunday is one of the most exciting and celebratory days of a New York City year when more than 33,000 runners cover 26.2 miles across the 5 boroughs.

BKS is, once again, proud to be an Official Charity Partner! The 2022 TCS New York City Marathon, which will be held on Sunday, November 6th. We are excited to be back since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.

JOIN OUR TEAM…Join Team BKS and help raise money to benefit the Brooklyn Kindergarten Society (BKS) – a leader in high quality early childhood education in Central Brooklyn since 1891. This is a great opportunity for you to take part in this momentous event while giving back to your community.
