About 300 runners, walkers and stroller-pushers will dash through Flushing Meadows Park on Saturday to support a nonprofit’s college and career readiness program.
The 5th Annual Global Kids 5K Run/ Walk/Push will be hosted by Global Kids, a New York City and Washington, D.C. based nonprofit which runs leadership and educational programming for underserved youth. The nonprofit aims to raise money for its Global Kids’ College and Career Readiness Program, which provides one-on-one support for students preparing to finish high school.
The runners, walkers and stroller pushers will gather in the park across from the entrance to the Queens Museum. Registration will begin at 9:30 a.m. and the 5K begins at 10:30 a.m.
