For those athletes who missed the lottery and couldn't get into the 2010 ING NYC Marathon, Team Continuum has 50 guaranteed spots left! But hurry, deadline to register is September 1st, 2010.
People from around the world arrive in New York City on November 7th to run in the ING NYC Marathon. These athletes are all at the top of their games, and have spent countless hours training for this big day. Their physical grit and mental determination are nearly unmatchable and the personal satisfaction of running a marathon is an achievement all on its own. For members of Team Continuum it’s even more than that.
Team Continuum, the official charity sponsor of the ING NYC Marathon, pays cancer patient’s bills and provides immediate and vital, non-medical, assistance to cancer patients and their families where the diagnosis results in disruption, hardship and uncertainty in their everyday lives. In an effort to raise money for their amazing cause, Team Continuum raises money from their team participants fundraising and running in the ING NYC Marathon. “Since 2003 Team Continuum has raised over $6.6 million, and I am proud to continue the legacy founder Paul Nicholls started years ago. Team Continuum is comprised of team of professional athletes, trainers, and even first time runners. We arm the runners with all the tools necessary to complete the marathon and they receive continuous support throughout their journey, from specific training regimens to bi-weekly runs. We are behind our running team just as much as we are behind the cancer patients the team benefits,” said Team Continuum CEO, Letty Simon.
