Brooklyn PTA’s 5K Run For Schools

Saturday May 7th, 2016 – 10AM

The PTAs of Brooklyn’s public schools; Brooklyn City Council Members Brad Lander, Laurie Cumbo, Stephen Levin, and Carlos Menchaca; Borough President Eric Adams; NYS Senator Jesse Hamilton; and sponsoring school partner PS 107 are coming together to sponsor  the  9th annual PTA 5-kilometer run/walk/stroll/toddle  in Prospect Park. The race will take  place on Saturday, May 7th at 10AM.  Number pickup and prerace activities will begin at 8:45 AM in the  Bartel-Pritchard  Parking Lot. Stay-tuned for information on where numbers can be picked-up in advance.

Last year, hundreds of parents, teachers and students from over 60 Brooklyn public schools joined us for the event. It was a huge success and we raised over $20,000 to support Brooklyn’s PTAs, but it wasn’t just a fundraiser.  Year after year, it has also been a great way to build relationships between parents, students, and educators to work together on critical issues facing all of our public schools.

Participants pay a registration fee ($20/individual, $5 for each additional family member up to 5) and may raise additional money through sponsors.

WANT TO GET YOUR PTA INVOLVED?  Commit to being a race captain!

Recruit at least 20 participants from your school/circle of friends to register and fund-raise for the race. The more people you register, and the more you fund-raise through sponsorship, the greater the proceeds for all schools!

For schools that recruit 20 or more participants, funds will be allocated in the following way: 50% of total profits from the race will be divided among each participating school, 25% will be divided in proportion to  the number of participants in the run from each school, and the remaining 25% will divided among the top 1/3 Title 1 schools.

More information and the registration link are coming soon. If you, your school, or your PTA are interested in participating, contact or
