Since its inaugural run in 2010, the Race Against Time has raised more than $450,000 for Charley's Fund to treat and end Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD):

  • - Is the number one genetic killer of children.
  • - Affects one in every 3,500 boys.
  • - Renders its boys wheelchair-bound by their teens.
  • - Takes its boys' lives via heart and lung failure by their twenties.


For the first time in the history of this disease, science is on the cusp of life-saving breakthroughs, and Charley's Fund is leading the pack in supporting cutting-edge research. Help us win this fight by supporting the Race Against Time.

(1) Run and fundraise – Sign yourself up for either the 1.7 mile or 13.1 mile run.

(2) Start or join a team – Want to go the extra ‘mile’?  Run with a team to amp up your fundraising force.

(3) Donate to a team or individual – Every dollar counts!


Once you register as a runner or a team, logistics and fundraising kits will follow! The Race Against Time is held in conjunction with a New York Road Runners event. To be officially registered, runners will need also to register with the NYRR for a small fee. Details included in registration kit.
