Qualitas of Life Named an Official Charity Partner of the 2023 TCS New York City Marathon

Qualitas of Life Foundation has been named an Official Charity Partner for the 2023 TCS New York City Marathon, which takes place on Sunday, November 5. Qualitas of Life will be among more than 550 official charity partners providing thousands of runners the opportunity to run in the world’s biggest and boldest marathon. 

The TCS New York City Marathon is one of the city’s most anticipated and iconic annual sporting events, attracting runners and spectators of all backgrounds, ages, and abilities from around the world. More than 50,000 runners are expected this year after the race returned to full capacity last year. 

“Financial literacy is freedom of choice because it allows you to make decisions. Fundamental decisions for yourself and your children, based on what you can finance; that is the bottom line. When you make those decisions, you change the future of your children, the future of your community.”

– Cecilia Gaston, Violence Intervention Program (VIP)

Qualitas of Life’s participation in the 2023 TCS New York City Marathon is a wonderful fundraising opportunity that will directly benefit our efforts to advance financial literacy in the Hispanic community. In the last 15 years, we have transformed the lives of over 26,983 Hispanic families who have felt more confident in managing their finances after taking our courses, which are free, bilingual, culturally adapted, and easy to follow. Thanks to our partners, the number of families we serve increases daily, strengthening our community’s empowerment and financial well-being. We are very proud that all of our runners will run to benefit the financial security of the Hispanic community and support their goals and futures.

The NYRR Official Charity Partner Program offers an opportunity for nonprofit organizations to raise funds to support their missions and services. Participating charities can offer guaranteed entry to runners who fundraise on their behalf.

Since its inception in 2006, the TCS New York City Marathon Official Charity Partner Program has raised more than $400 million for more than 1,000 worthy nonprofit organizations across the globe. Prior to the start of the official program, the New York City Marathon had served as an outlet for individual philanthropic runners since the 1980s.

Qualitas of Life Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides financial education to Hispanic individuals and their families, to foster their financial security and improve their standard of living. At Qualitas of Life, we believe that financial education and inclusion are crucial means for spurring economic development and building thriving communities. We work to ensure the most disadvantaged and underserved members of the Hispanic community can develop the financial knowledge to improve their quality of life and achieve financial security and wellbeing.
