• Boys & Girls Club of Harlem

TCS New York City Marathon

Updated: Feb 27

For more than 38 years, Boys & Girls Club of Harlem has proudly served the youth and community of Harlem.

We provide access and opportunities for youth to reach their full potential as responsible members of the community. We believe success is within reach of every young person that walks through our doors.

Our kids benefit from trained, caring, professional staff and volunteers who help them take control of their lives, envision productive futures and reach their goals.

We are thrilled to be a charity partner for the TCS New York City Marathon in 2019 where we will be cheering for #TeamBGCH at mile 22 as they run through historic Harlem.
