Brooklyn PTA Fun Run  

Start Time: 10:00 AM
Prospect Park
Bartel Pritchard
Brooklyn, NY
5K

THE EVENT

The PTA 5K Fun Run has brought together hundreds of parents, teachers, and students from scores of Brooklyn schools and beyond to run/walk/stroll/toddle 5-kilometers through Prospect Park for over a decade.  It has become a rite of spring for so many local schools – not only for the funds it raises for our PTAs, but for the community it builds.

Please join the PTAs of Brooklyn’s public schools and our event sponsors — City Council Members Brad Lander, Laurie Cumbo, Stephen Levin, and Carlos Menchaca; Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams; and school partner PS 107 – for this year’s race.

Number pickup and pre race activities will begin at 9:00 AM in the Bartel-Pritchard Parking Lot. Stay-tuned for information on where numbers can be picked-up in advance.

WANT TO GET YOUR PTA INVOLVED? 

COMMIT TO BEING A RACE CAPTAIN!

Recruit at least 20 participants from your school community (and supporters) to register and fund-raise for the race. The more people you register, and the more you fund-raise through donations/family sponsorship, the greater the proceeds for all schools!

For schools that recruit 20 or more participants, funds will be allocated in the following way: 50% of total profits from the race will be divided among each participating school, 25% will be divided in proportion to the number of participants in the run from each school, and the remaining 25% will be divided among the top 1/3 Title 1 schools.

REGISTER AS PART OF YOUR SCHOOL TEAM OR AS AN UNAFFILIATED RUNNER

School participants pay a registration fee ($25/individual, $5 for each additional family member up to 6 total) with each participant counting towards your school team.

If your school has 85%+ student that qualify for FRPL, please contact us at the address listed at the bottom for additional registration options.

Participants that are not registering to support a specific school, will help boost the funding for all schools involved:  $30 per adult/$15 per minor.

PROVIDE ADDITIONAL SUPPORT FOR SCHOOLS IN NEED

The PTA 5K Fun Run allocates a greater share of the money raised to participating schools with a high percentage of Free and Reduced Price Lunch students, but there’s more to be done for those schools most in need.  Here are some ways you can be involved:

  • Provide an additional donation at registration.
  • Raise additional sponsorship funds within your school community and write a check to the event from your PTA.
  • Partner with another school that may struggle to meet team levels. You can build community together and create one large team to split funds.

Contact us to discuss these, or your own creative ideas to bring additional support to schools with great need.
