Armenian Students’ Association of America Named an Official Charity
Partner of the 2015 TCS New York City Marathon Set for Sunday,
November 1, 2015

New York, March 10, 2015 – Armenian Students’ Association of America
(ASA) will become an Official Charity Partner of the 2015 TCS New York
City Marathon, it was announced today by the president of the New York
chapter of ASA, Rafi Hovsepian. The race will take place on Sunday,
November 1, 2015.

`ASA is thrilled to partner with the TCS New York City Marathon as an
official charity partner,’ said Rafi Hovsepian. `The TCS New York
City Marathon provides a powerful platform for our passionate charity
runners to fundraise and raise awareness for causes that are close to
their hearts. We are looking forward to supporting our runners
throughout their memorable journeys as they train for, and ultimately
achieve their goal of completing this race, all while raising critical
funds to benefit our arts and education programs.

Nearly 300 official charity partners are expected to participate in
the 2015 TCS New York City Marathon this year.

ASA is one of the oldest Armenian-American community organizations
established in 1910, and its TEAM ARMENIA will run to proudly display
the resilience of the Armenian people in their triumph over tragedy
through education, arts and the pursuit of excellence.

`We warmly welcome Armenian Students’ Association of America as an
official charity partner for the 2015 TCS New York City Marathon,’
said Mary Wittenberg, president and CEO of New York Road Runners. `All
of our participants are inspired to run for reasons significant and
special to them, and we are especially appreciative of those who make
a meaningful commitment to run on behalf of one of our official
charity partners. We wish the best to all of these runners as they
begin to plan and prepare for an experience of a lifetime at the 2015
TCS New York City Marathon.’

The 2015 TCS New York City Marathon will feature a talented American
and international professional athlete field, charity runners, and
thousands of runners of all ages and abilities. More than 10,000
volunteers help to support participants across the 26.2-mile race
route, which touches each of New York City’s five boroughs, and is
lined with more than one million neighbors and guests. Last year, NYRR
celebrated each of the 50,530 runners who crossed the finish line and
made the 2014 TCS New York City Marathon the largest in the world,
including the one-millionth finisher ever in the history of the
event. Participants hailed from more than 130 countries and each of
the 50 states.

The 2015 TCS New York City Marathon will again air live locally on
ABC7 and nationally on ESPN2.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
