About 2023 TCS NYC Marathon

With the approval of Public Law 380 on June 1, 1954; November 11th became a day to honor American Veterans of all wars. Later that same year, on October 8th, Army General and 34th President of the United States of America, Dwight D. Eisenhower, issued the first Veterans Day Proclamation, which stated. “In order to insure proper and widespread observance of this anniversary, all Veterans, all Veterans’ organizations, and the entire citizenry will wish to join hands in the common purpose [to honor American Veterans of all wars].”

Here we are 66 years later in 2020, still honoring our American Heroes but instead of large parades and gatherings, we are celebrating these brave men and women from our own homes and socially distanced gatherings. Virtually join us, starting October 1st and culminating on November 11th, 2020, to help make a difference in our military Veteran’s lives. By joining or giving to this campaign, you will help PGA HOPE impact countless Veteran’s lives through the continued use of the PGA HOPE program.

PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere) is the flagship military program of PGA REACH, the charitable foundation of the PGA of America. PGA HOPE introduces golf to Veterans with disabilities to enhance their physical, mental, social and emotional well-being. Because of the memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Department of Veterans Affairs, PGA HOPE programming is offered at no cost for Military Veterans as a form of therapy and is funded by PGA REACH.

The TCS New York City Marathon is one of the world’s most popular marathons.  Over the past fifty years, the New York City Marathon has grown to the world’s largest marathon boasting over 47,000 finishers from all over the world in 2022.  The 26.2-mile course touches all five boroughs of New York City including Staten Island, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and The Bronx – creating an unmatched experience.


This November, seventeen PGA Golf Professionals will set out to run in the 2023 TCS New York City Marathon to raise awareness and support for PGA REACH. Each runner is on a mission to raise funds to positively impact the lives of boys and girls (PGA Jr. League), Veterans (PGA HOPE), and diverse populations (PGA WORKS) through the game of golf.  Together, with your support, you can help impact thousands of individuals and local communities across the country.
