The PTAs of Brooklyn’s public schools and office of Brooklyn City Council Member Brad Lander are coming together to sponsor the fourth annual PTA 5-kilometer race/walk/stroll/toddle in Prospect Park. The race will take place on Saturday April 30th at 10AM. Number pickup and prerace activities will begin at 8AM in the Bartel Pritchard Parking Lot.
Last year, over 500 parents, teachers and students from 17 Brooklyn public schools joined us for the event. It was a huge success and we raised over $6,000 to support Brooklyn’s PTAs.
As we all know, potential budget cuts in Albany threaten not only after-school enrichment activities but also many of the core programs our children rely upon in their schools. This fundraiser is our way, as defenders of public education, to come together and take action in support of our kids’ schools.
Participants pay a registration fee ($15/individual, $25/family) and raise additional money through sponsors.Registration fee is waived for any individual or family who is able to fundraise at least $50 through sponsors.Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 fundraisers!
