Join the Building Homes for Heroes Team

Building Homes for Heroes is a proud Charity Partner for the 2024 United Airlines NYC Half and has 5 entries available. Every dollar raised will help us with our mission of building and modifying mortgage free homes for our nation’s wounded veterans, first responders and their families. Along with our many other programs to further support them with emergency funding, financial guidance, academic and athletic support, plus so much more. With your help, we will reach our milestone 400th home in 2024!

This year’s Half will take place on Sunday, March 17th. The 13.1-mile journey begins in Brooklyn, making its way over the historic Manhattan Bridge and FDR Drive. Runners also get the unique opportunity to run through Times Square (only 1 of 2 times that it is closed each year!) and finishing in Central Park.
