By registering for this team you are signing up to support the mission of the national Tourette Syndrome Association. Members of TEAM TSA ask individuals or businesses to sponsor them in athletic events and those funds benefit TSA's research programs to search for a cure for TS as well as educational programs.
Each person must raise a minimum of $600. If you raise $3000 TSA will provide you two nights hotel on Nov. 2 and Nov. 3 in Manhattan. If you need additional nights, TSA can help secure them for you. In addition each person receives a guaranteed entry into the marathon, an invitation to our team dinner, a T-Shirt and other items.
There is no fee to register with TSA, but you will have to pay the regular registration fee to the New York City Marathon. Once you complete this registration with us at no cost, then you will receive an email from the New York Road Runners with a direct link to register for the marathon. The fee you pay goes to the marathon and is the same fee everyone who qualified for the marathon or got in through the lottery paid.
How It Works
Once you are registered a webpage will be created for you on our team site and you will receive a link to customize the page. Using our online system you will be able to do email blasts to direct people to visit your page and sponsor you by making a tax deductible donation. You will receive an email notifying you of the donation and they will also receive a thank you email in which they can use for tax purposes. In addition, you will receive hard copy materials in the mail to help you.
