Event Information

Join Team YSC and dedicate your run to support young adults affected by breast cancer. YSC is honored to be an Official Charity Partner for the 2024 TCS New York City Marathon, organized by New York Road Runners (NYRR). This is the largest marathon in the world, with 51,404 finishers in 2023 representing 148 countries and all 50 states in the U.S. 

YSC has been allocated 5 bibs to share with committed runners in the YSC community who will participate and raise critical funds to support more than 20,000 young adults affected by breast cancer every year.

Why Join Team YSC?

Breast cancer is different for young adults under age 40 and they often face issues that impact their quality and length of life including:

  • Being diagnosed with more aggressive forms of breast cancer with higher fatality rates.
  • Fertility issues that may affect their ability to have children.
  • Early onset menopause from treatment.
  • Negative impacts to relationships and sexual health.
  • Financial instability from job loss and lack of sufficient health insurance.
  • Systemic racism, discrimination, and language barriers for people of color and LGBTG+ survivors.
  • Underrepresentation in research studies and clinical trials.

YSC empowers young adults diagnosed with breast cancer age 40 and under by providing free tailored education, culturally-relevant resources and referrals, support and community programs to them and their co-survivors. Through free educational resources and programming, annual conferences, and vibrant local and online support networks throughout the U.S. and abroad, YSC ensures that no young adult faces breast cancer alone.
