Caroline Wozniacki to run in the New York City Marathon
Former World No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki is all geared up to run in the 26.2 mile long New York City Marathon for a charity cause in November.

World No. 13 Caroline Wozniacki, who had called off her marriage to golfer Rory McIlroyin May which was scheduled to take place in November, has decided to make the most of her free time and utilize it for the betterment of New York City kids. The 24–year-old tennis star has decided to run in the New York City Marathon to help in raising money for a very worthy cause. At the end of the ongoing Tennis season Wozniakci will team up with the winner of the Boston Marathon MebKeflezighi to run for  ‘ Team For Kids’, a group of devoted runners who run to raise funds for the New York Road Runners youth programs.

"We raise money for kids who have no - or very limited - access to sports," Wozniacki said.

"We make running groups for them so they can go out and get an active lifestyle, enjoy it and have fun. We also teach them about nutrition and healthy living. All of that has shown a big increase in happiness for kids - they get a healthier body, healthier mind, better grades in school. It all goes together.”

"I think it's such a great charity. And we feel like we have to start early - nowadays we have all the computers and technology, but it's very important the kids still go outside, play and have fun."

“Obviously, it’s going to be hard,” she said. “I’m a tennis player first, and that’s what my main priority is. At the same time, I’m going to incorporate a lot of longer runs into my training.”

"Sports has always been a big part of my life," the former World No.1 said. "It's taught me so many things - discipline, setting myself a goal and striving for it, and really working hard for it. And a big part of my friends are from sports, so the social aspect is definitely a very important thing as well."

The Marathon will be held in Wozniacki's favourite city New York , where she reached her only Grand Slam finalin 2010..

"I love New York. It's one of my favorite places in the world, and I've always wanted to run the New York City Marathon. It's a tough marathon to run, with all the bridges, but I think it's so much fun to run through the five boroughs, and to finish off in Central Park is just going to be amazing.”

"It's going to be an amazing run and an amazing experience. I'm so excited for it!"
