Get Ready to Run!

Sandy Hook Promise is an official Charity Partner of the 2021 TCS New York City Marathon. With social distancing and safety protocols in place, limited bibs are available. We want you to join us!

With every mile you run, you’re helping to protect our kids. Children are safer today thanks to the commitment of runners like you. Our runners have our deepest gratitude!

The minimum fundraising commitment required by the New York Road Runners to join Team SHP is $3,000.

Fundraise for Gun Violence Prevention

Since the start of the pandemic, depression, social isolation and gun violence has been on the rise. Now more than ever, our ambition is to bring our proven Know the Signs programs to even more communities in need at no cost.

Your fundraising helps support our programs, including educational materials, crisis counselors and expert trainers. Your generosity also funds research to improve programs and develop new ways to end gun violence against children and youth.
