Team Sandy Hook Promise

Have fun while raising funds for our NYC Marathon Team’s efforts to prevent gun violence.

Get Active for a Cause

The 2022 TCS New York City Marathon is being held on November 6. Our team of runners needs your support to reach their ambitious goal of raising $100,000 to help end school shootings. That’s why we’ve launched our virtual Team Sandy Hook Promise. Even long distance, your athletic efforts will contribute to our lifesaving violence prevention programs.

Fundraise for Gun Violence Prevention

With our nation still reeling from the tragic massacre at Robb Elementary School, we must take action to save lives. 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, materials, crisis counselors and training staff. Your generosity also funds research to improve programs and developing new ways to end gun violence against children.
