Tom Heath will be among the 13 participants supporting Catholic Charities who will run in the 2021 TCS New York City Marathon Nov. 7. He will run in support of the St. Nicholas Project, a Catholic Charities of New York Christmas season program that provides over a thousand New York families with warm winter essentials.   

I am excited to be a part of Catholic Charities New York race team. Running the New York City Marathon has long been a bucket list item and achieving that goal while raising money for underserved people is the best of both worlds. During these challenging times it is great to give back to an organization with Christian values that seeks to help others.

I live in San Francisco. This will be my fourth marathon. I have run at least one marathon every decade since I was 30. I hope to continue that trend for as many decades as possible. I have been married to my wife Linda for the past 35 years and we have three children, two lovely daughters-in-law’s, and two beautiful grandchildren. 

I look forward to a wonderful weekend in November!
