A year after the fallout from Superstorm Sandy threw the New York City Marathon’s charity program into turmoil, a new normal has evolved in runner fundraising.
That includes fewer slots for charity runners, more modest fundraising projections, and an intense competition for entrants and dollars among the participating charity organizations, especially with the charitable arm of New York Road Runners, the nonprofit that has put on the country’s biggest marathon since 1970.

FS reader Jeff Schreifels, senior partner at Veritus Group, made a point the other day in response to my blog post about The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Totally Baldacious campaign. I see the point, but I don't completely agree.

DUBLIN, Ohio, October 14, 2009 — During Cardinal Health's two-week campaign to encourage employees to give back to their communities, employees donated more than $2 million to local non-profit organizations, and more than 1,600 employees at 71 sites worldwide donated more than 2,800 hours of service through hundreds of volunteer service projects.
Sometimes, organizations have to stand alone and advocate for specific issues on their own. But when trying to move the legislative ball on large issues, there’s strength in numbers. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is a voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient services.
