Get moving for good causes at these upcoming 5k runs!
As we say goodbye to the long days and warm weather of summer, you might be needing a little extra motivation to get outside and get moving. After all, it’s a lot easier to squeeze in a run after work when it stays light until 8:00 p.m., and you always have the future need to put on a swimsuit to drive you during the warmer months. As the weather cools down, though, the coming sweaters and dark nights might have you losing your fitness steam.
Don’t worry! There are a couple of great upcoming 5k races in the Staten Island area that can motivate you to get moving for a good cause. Here’s a look at a couple of them.
- 5k Benefit Run For Urgent: In an effort to support Urgent, a nonprofit that advocates for pets on death row, Sketchers is hosting this 4k on September 26th at Wolf’s Pond Park. The top three male and female finishers will get Sketchers shoes, and you can get raffle tickets to compete for Mets games and Blue Man Group performances! Bring your pooch for the 1-mile walk after the race.
- Step For A Cure 5k Run & Walk: On September 20th, head to Clove Lakes Park to take a step towards a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. This will be the 4th annual Step for a Cure, and people of all fitness levels can get involved because the 5k run will be followed by a walk! There will also be a magic show, fun races for the kids, raffles, and more.
We hope you have a great time getting active at these exciting upcoming races!
