2020 TCS New York City Marathon

Team ETM is full for the 2020 TCS New York City Marathon. Please check back for any updates!


For the eleventh year in a row, Education Through Music has secured a limited number of spots in the 2020 TCS New York City Marathon, through the Community-Level Charity Program.

Be a part of Team ETM! Run the TCS New York City Marathon on Sunday, Nov. 1, 2020, and help raise money to support access to high-quality music education for children in New York City schools.

Running with Team ETM is an amazing opportunity to raise funds for music education while sharing a life-changing, powerful experience with thousands of other runners from across the globe.



Each runner commits to raising at least $2,500 for ETM. This can be satisfied through a combination of personal donations, donations from family and friends, company matching gifts, and others.

We make fundraising easy for you by providing you with the tools you need to reach your commitment goal:

  • Customizable personal fundraising web page to send to family and friends.
  • Fundraising resources (sample letters, fundraising ideas, tips, etc.)
  • Dedicated staff to provide professional fundraising guidance.



Runners who commit to raising $2,500 receive the following:

  • Guaranteed entry to the 2019 TCS New York City Marathon
  • Recognition on Education Through Music’s social media channels
  • Team ETM performance shirt
  • Access to Tier 1 of NYRR’s comprehensive online training program
