2019 New York City Half Marathon Guide Dog Relay

Want to join our team and be a Running Guide Dogs Supporter? Our nonprofit organization is funded entirely by generous donors like you. Donate to support our Running Guides Program.  As a thank you, we will send you a link to a video of Tom and Westley training in New York City.

For the first time, a blind runner will participate in the 2019 NYC Half guided by a relay of running guide dogs instead of human guides. The nonprofit’s president and CEO, Thomas Panek, will run in the New York Road Runners event on March 17, 2019 to raise awareness and funds to provide athletes who are blind with a service dog capable of guiding while running.
