Team Step With Refugees

USA for UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, is proud to join as an Official Charity Partner for the 2024 TCS New York City Marathon.  

When you train and run with us, the miles you log and the dollars you raise will help brave refugee families on their journey to safety.  

Join Team Step With Refugees on November 3, 2024, and make every step count!  

During the months and likely years these families are away from home, your love will be a much needed second wind. With you by their side, they can face any challenge as they recover and rebuild their lives. 

You will help provide critical aid like food, warm blankets and safe shelter in moments of crisis. But you will do so much more than that — you will empower refugees with hope and opportunity. 

How does it work?  

Team Step With Refugees’ runners are guaranteed race entry when they commit to fundraise (or donate) a minimum of $5,000. A limited number of guaranteed spots are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

How to Join the Team?  

Send an email with the subject line “Team Step With Refugees” to to secure a spot and get set up on our fundraising platform. Note, runners will be required to pay their own race entry fee ($255 for NYRR members and $315 for non-members). 


Once you secure your spot, our team manager will help you prepare to fundraise and be a cheerleader during your training and fundraising journey. Please note that New York Road Runners require runners committing to a charity spot to raise a minimum amount. With this in mind, USA for UNHCR is requiring runners to raise a minimum of $5,000 and will ask for credit card information during the signup process to secure their spot. If a fundraiser doesn’t meet the minimum commitment, the balance will be charged to the credit card on file on December 5, 2024.
