Emily R's Shining Stars
Welcome to Emily R’s Shining Stars’ Race for the Kids team page!!
On Saturday, September 16, 2017, Big Brothers Big Sisters of NYC will host its 13th Annual Race for the Kids – part of Nickelodeon’s Worldwide Day of Play in Brooklyn's Prospect Park! This 5K run/walk attracts over 4,000 participants from the community. At the race and picnic that follows, the children served by our organization are joined by their mentors and families, our many adult volunteers, and caring New Yorkers for a fun-filled day that celebrates the power of mentoring, and emphasizes the importance of health and exercise. We would love for you to join in support of our cause!
For over 111 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has provided children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported, one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever, and continues doing so with your help and support.
Our Race for the Kids event is Big Brothers Big Sisters of NYC’s largest annual peer-to-peer fundraiser. Leading up to race day, we host various smaller events to raise funds and awareness for the race. This year our team, Emily R’s Shining Stars, has a goal of raising $1,000, all of which will go to helping Brothers Big Sisters of NYC continue changing the lives of our children and youth by providing them with caring adult mentors who help to expand their horizons and enrich their futures.
