We believe teachers serve as inspirational agents of change in the communities they serve and live. TCS, the title and technology sponsor of the TCS New York City Marathon, honors 50 teachers in the U.S. and Canada with a VIP experience to run through NYC’s five boroughs each November. TCS also provides access to resources for teachers from its flagship programs, Ignite My Future in School and goIT, designed to enhance students’ computational skills and computer science education.
This year’s winners include teachers who found their love of running through a range of life-changing experiences. Notably, beating cancer and overcoming other illnesses, coping with the loss of loved ones, reducing anxiety from being a caretaker to aging or ill family members, and supporting charities.
