About The Race

Race for the Kids is an annual Fall charity event hosted by Big Brothers Big Sisters of NYC now in our 12th year. This year’s event will once again be held in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park on September 17th, 2016 at 9:00am, where we expect over 4,000 attendees. We’re proud to also include microchip timing for avid runners in NYC interested in 5k timed events and who may also want to support our youth mentoring mission.


The Race is one of our largest fundraising events and it is filled with family friendly activities thanks to our presenting sponsor Nickelodeon. After the race we invite all runners to bring their families and matches to enjoy the festivities of Nickelodeon’s Worldwide Day of Play.


Our goal this year is to raise $500,000 that will go towards our year round efforts to provide mentoring services to children throughout New York City.


Big Brothers Big Sisters of NYC is the nation’s oldest and NYC’s largest mentoring organization now celebrating over 110 years of service.


Who participates in Race for the Kids?

  • Our Mentoring Matches or as we call them Bigs and Littles
  • Families throughout NYC
  • Seasonal avid 5k NYC Runners
  • Friends of our volunteers
  • Those who prefer to walk
  • Corporate Groups

It only costs $20.00 to register or $25.00 if you would like your race timed. But of course you can individually raise more, or sponsor a friend or team.
