latest news and updates on COVID-19 for the FD community

UPDATE: Due to the developing coronavirus, the United Airlines NYC Half Marathon has been cancelled. The Foundation is working with NYRR and Team FD participants to explore options. The Foundation will keep you updated via our website and social channels. Thank you for your patience. 


The Familial Dysautonomia Foundation is pleased to introduce Team FD for the 2020 United Airlines NYC Half Marathon on March 15, 2020 ! 


Not only will each member of TEAM FD run 13.1 miles through the streets of New York City,  but each has also set a personal fundraising goal.


Meet the members of Team FD, and help them reach their fundraising goal by clicking on the links below. Your gift will fund the work of the FD Foundation.




We are thrilled to support the efforts of TEAM FD and look forward to cheering for them on March 15!
