The Leary Firefighters Foundation will be competing with its inaugural “Team LFF” in the ING New York City Marathon on November 1, 2009. This is a rare opportunity to participate as a runner or supporter in one of the most prestigious running events in the world.
Through its partnership with the New York Road Runners, The Leary Firefighters Foundation has been awarded a limited number of guaranteed fundraising entries. The proceeds raised by team members and supporters will go to The Foundation’s charitable mission of providing fire departments with the tools they need to maintain the highest level of public safety.
“We’re very excited to start Team LFF and have our inaugural Fire Battalion run in the New York City Marathon this November,” said actor Denis Leary, president of the Leary Firefighters Foundation. “It’s a great way to get our mission in front of a brand new audience, all while taking part in one of the most famous races in the greatest city in the world.”
All Team LFF runners registering for guaranteed entry must raise a minimum amount and will receive team perks such as team gear, training programs, goody bag, post-marathon after party, and other items to be announced. A second tier is available to those who have secured entry into the ING New York City Marathon 2009 at a lower fundraising minimum, but would like to be part of Team LFF.
All runners must first register for the ING New York City Marathon 2009 to receive an entry number.
