Running for Raptors,
Conservation & Education

Over five decades ago, The Peregrine Fund helped to restore the critically endangered, Peregrine Falcon. Today, New York City hosts the largest population density of Peregrines on our continent which is why it is fitting that for the fourth year in a row, we will partner with TCS New York City Marathon to honor a strong tradition of excellence and perseverance.


Join us in supporting our incredible team of runners who are putting everything on the line to support education and raptor conservation worldwide. Help our runners set, meet, and exceed their goals in support of raptor conservation. Each of our team members has committed to raising a minimum of $3,500 for global raptor conservation. All of your donations applied via this fundraising site will go directly to The Peregrine Fund's mission and all donations are 100% tax deductible.


Headquartered in Boise, Idaho with field offices in Africa, Madagascar, Ecuador, and the U.S., The Peregrine Fund is the world leader in conserving birds of prey. As a catalyst for change, we inspire people to value raptors and take action, while investing in tomorrow's conservation leaders. Support for our work comes from individual donors like you, corporations, foundations, and government grants. Please consider donating today. #RunForRaptors

Hi I'm Tom, and I am The Peregrine Fund's Domestic Program Field Biologist. While my position allows me to be involved with many of our boots on the ground efforts to conserve raptors, I am extremely excited to represent The Peregrine Fund in a new way, running for raptors!

Honeoye Falls, NY

Twenty years ago I married my wife Kerri, and we stopped in at the World Center for Birds of Prey on our trip back home to Seattle. Now, all these years later, I have the opportunity to do something special for Kerri, to celebrate her and her love of birds.  I am running the NYC marathon to raise support and awareness for the Peregrine Fund, the same organization that we stopped at on our roadtrip all those years ago.

I’m proud to be running my first marathon on behalf of The Peregrine Fund. Though my own pace cannot be described as fast, it feels appropriate to run my first marathon in support of the organization responsible for bringing back “the world’s fastest animal” to this city.
