Run with us!

Who we are:

The Friends of Gov­er­nors Island is an inde­pen­dent non-prof­it work­ing to cham­pi­on the Island’s con­tin­ued growth, vital­i­ty, and acces­si­bil­i­ty as a trea­sured pub­lic resource. We stew­ard the Island’s green spaces, pro­duce year-round free pub­lic pro­gram­ming, and man­age vis­i­tor ser­vices and vol­un­teer­ing, all of which help build a com­mu­ni­ty ded­i­cat­ed to the Island’s future. We are so excit­ed to be an offi­cial char­i­ty part­ner for the TCS NYC Marathon in 2024, and can’t wait to sup­port our run­ners as they com­plete the icon­ic trek through the five boroughs.
