Former USWNT teammates Abby Wambach, Lauren Holiday, Kate Markgraf and Leslie Osborne are set to run in the 2021 New York City Marathon on Sunday in support of the Jrue and Lauren Holiday Social Impact Fund (or, JLH Fund).

It’ll be Wambach’s first marathon, something she told NBC Sports will be a new experience.

“I was never shocked at myself that I could play 90 minutes of soccer,” she said. “What will be shocking to me is that I can run for four hours straight and not stop.”

Her hope is to run the marathon in under four hours.

As for the group’s mission, Holiday and husband Jrue began the JLH Social Impact Fund in 2020 to help those impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and racial and social injustices. Currently, the group has raised $26,278.54 of their $26,200 goal in running the marathon for the fund.
