Junior Achievement of New York assembles a team of runners each year to compete in the NYC Marathon while raising funds for Junior Achievement.
Mission: We believe running a marathon is a great metaphor for life because you get out of it what you put into it.
Goal: Raise $25,000 for NYC, students served by JA’s K-12 financial literacy, workforce readiness, and entrepreneurship education programs.
The Atlanta Tri Club has a youth program called “Tri Stars.”
Why Lock Laces®: Our laces have been a go-to piece of gear for marathoners for years because they ensure their shoes don't come unites during races. Lock Laces® also is proud support Junior Achievement’s mission. When you buy a pair of Lock Laces® and use the code ACHIEVE at checkout, part of the sales go to Junior Achievement NYC!
