you don't have to run the marathon to support restaurants! 

On November 7th, TEAM ROAR will be running the 50th TCS NYC Marathon, the first since the pandemic. Team ROAR, which is made up of a group of fierce and fabulous restaurant staffers and owners, will be hitting the streets of our magnificent city for 26.2 miles, raising money for ROAR's Health and Wellness Project that will offer NYC restaurant staff deeply discounted (or free) health care, mental health care, wellness, financial planning services, and much more.

Robin Hood, NYC's largest poverty fighting philanthropy is our marathon team sponsor. Many of you may recall that Robin Hood teamed up with ROAR to create a special relief fund for restaurant staff who lost their jobs during the height of the pandemic, distributing $500 in aid to unemployed industry workers on a first come, first served basis. Our collective efforts helped us provide emergency cash relief to more than 6500 restaurant personnel. We excited to partner with Robin Hood again for this year's marathon and the first $20,000 raised will go to help fight poverty in NYC.
