Upcoming: Brooklyn PTA 5K Run/Walk Tonight

June 13th, 2008 · 1 Comment

There’s a 5K Run/Walk for Public Elementary Schools sponsored by the Brooklyn PTA tonight. Here’s a bit from the release:

Parents, students, and teachers come together to run, raise funds, and protest budget cuts. Hundreds of parents, students, and teachers will meet up in Prospect Park to run, walk, and stroll 5k for Brooklyn’s public elementary schools on Friday night, June 13th. As budget cuts of $450 million loom, teams from the PS10, PS29, PS39, PS 107, PS 139, Brooklyn New School (PS 146), and PS 295 will join forces to run, raise funds jointly for their schools, and challenge the Bloomberg Administration’s proposed cuts. Funds raised from the run will be shared equally among participating schools, with 50% of the total split equally amongst all the schools that participate, and 50% divided up based on the size of the schools. The run is also supported by the United Federation of Teachers. The starting bell sounds at 7 p.m. (registration begins at 6 p.m.) at the Lincoln Road entrance to Prospect Park. Walk-up registration is welcome.
