InterExchange Participants Part of Largest Volunteer Group in History of NYC Marathon
As part of the cultural aspect of the Exchange Visitor program, InterExchange participants are encouraged to volunteer their time to worthy causes in their local communities.
On November 1, 2015, more that 70 participants from our Au Pair USA and Trainee USA programs came out to support the 50,000+ runners in the New York City Marathon, handing out sponges and water to the racers as they passed.
Our participants were part of a larger group of over 600 J-1 Exchange Visitor volunteers, coordinated by the U.S. Department of State and representing 13 member organizations of the Alliance for International Exchange. According to the New York Road Runners, organizers of the NYC Marathon, this group comprised the most diverse and largest pool of volunteers brought together by one umbrella group in the history of the NYC Marathon.
From just a handful of runners in 1970, the New York City Marathon has grown into the largest and most popular marathon in the world. This year’s marathon was won by Stanley Biwott of Kenya with a time of 2:10:34.
