New York Marathon looked at figures and concluded nonprofits were having a hard time filling charity slots, so this year's race will have fewer.
"New York City Marathon organizers have reduced the number of slots available to runners raising money for charity, saying many nonprofit groups are struggling to fill the spots to which they committed, writes The Wall Street Journal. New York Road Runners, the nonprofit that manages the race, cut charity slots for the November 2 event to about 7,000, down by several hundred from past years, and trimmed its slate of charity partners from 320 to 290." -- the Chronicle of Philanthropy
