RIVER EDGE, N.J. -- Habitat Bergen's team for the upcoming New York City half marathon has raised $6,335. The race is bright and early on Sunday, March 20.
Habitat for Humanity of Bergen County has five runners on its team: Josh S., Nina C., Dennis M., Brian K. and Brian S.
Habitat got its five slots through the Official Charity Partner program of the United Airlines NYC Half: the race is, generally, sold out. Every participant through this program had to raise at least $1,000 for his charity.
Runners from over 80 countries will be participating this year. The top prize in the men's and women's categories is $20,000.
This marathon is part of New York Road Runners' Five-Borough Series. For more information about the marathon, visit the event website. Want to watch the marathon live -- via technology? Get details here.For more information about Habitat Bergen -- or to volunteer or donate -- visit its website.
