Support the AICF

The American-Italian Cancer Foundation (AICF) is a New York-based nonprofit organization supporting cancer research and promoting breast cancer early detection.

AICF awards post-doc research fellowships to Italian scientists conducting research in the United States and operates a Mobile Care Clinic providing no cost mammograms and clinical breast exams to medically underserved NYC women.

Runners can support the American-Italian Cancer Foundation by making a donation during registration or by visiting the AICF web site.

Live unofficial results are available during the race at liveresults.nyrr.org and in the NYRR app. Features include leaderboards, map tracking, and an individual runner search that can be shared on Facebook and Twitter. Tell your friends and family to follow your progress, and because the system works great on mobile devices, you can get unofficial results right after the race!
