If our school registers at least 20 people, PS 39 will receive a percentage of the proceeds! Sign up HERE. Questions? Contact Amanda Onion at email@example.com.
IMPORTANT INFO from the event organizers:
Due to an unexpected permitting problem, the Brooklyn PTA 5K must be moved to Saturday, May 14th, 10am start (8:45am check-in).
We know this will cause inconvenience, but we hope that many families and school teams can still join the event. We know how hard schools have worked to build teams!
Current registrations will still be counted toward team quotas even if you cannot make the new date. We hope runners who have already signed up will consider keeping registrations in place to benefit our PTAs, but if you have questions about the date change and your registration, please email firstname.lastname@example.org andPTArunfortheschools@gmail.com.
