Here’s What You Need to Know

Race for the Kids hosted by Big Brothers Big Sisters of NYC is now in its 12th year. This year’s event will once again be held in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park on September 17th, 2016 at 8:00am, where we expect over 4,000 attendees.


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 everyone 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.


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.


Only microchip runners are able to win the race!


Please join us on September 17th, 2016 in Prospect Park!
