Response from Team DetermiNation

I got a response today from Team DetermiNation (American Cancer Society) regarding their fundraising requirements, benefits, and more for the NYC Marathon.

The fundraising goal is $3400 which includes:

  • Guaranteed Race Entry (still responsible for entry fee)
  • Race-Weekend VIP Amenities
  • Transportation to the Start of the Race
  • DetermiNation Running Gear
  • NYC Marathon 50th Anniversary Commemorative Gear
  • DetermiNation Jacket
  • Monthly and Weekly Training Calendars
  • In person and Virtual Trainings
    • Two Coached Group Workouts per week
    • Go-to-Coach: Athletes are paired with a local coach to contact via phone or email for training related questions
    • Clinics on various running topics such as gear, injury prevention, cross training, and more.
  • Personal Fundraising Page
  • Fundraising Mentor to help reach goals

If I'm able to get a bib through the lottery ($295), I can still join the team but the fundraising goal is only $1000. This would give me access to all the training programs and special amenities.

I have a lot to think about now but I'm definitely doing it this year. One way or another, I will be crossing that finish line in Central Park.
