CURC Family Walk/Run Set For May 15

CURC Family Walk/Run Set For May 15

History takes place on May 15, as the Collaboration for Unity in the Rockaway Community (CURC) sponsors Rockaway’s 1st Annual Family Fun Walk/Run.

The walk will start at Beach 73 Street and end at Bayswater Park (Bay 32 Street and Beach Channel Drive) and will bring together people from all over the community in observance of Health Awareness and Community Unity. Residents, families, groups, and all organizations are encouraged to walk or run with pride in our community through the center of Rockaway.

CURC is a partnership of several groups and concerned residents in the community working together in the interest of the Rockaway unity. CURC members are excited as history is made. Avid runners are welcome to race through the heart of Rockaway while strollers can take their time walking down Beach Channel Drive, starting at Carlton Manor, passing by Ocean Bay and Beach 41 Street Houses, Peninsula Hospital Center, PS 105 and MS 198. The event ends at Bayswater Park where community children will participate in a Pee Wee Run. Health screenings and information will be available there.

The kick-off for the Walk/Run will start at 9:30 in the Carlton Manor Parking Lot with opening remarks by our local representatives and sponsors. The event will run from 9:30am to 2pm. Registration begins at 8:30 in front of Carlton Manor.

Anyone interested in participating in the Walk/Run or becoming a volunteer can contact the PRYSE Community Resource Center at 718 327-8306. Early registration will be open until May 10. Registration after that date will be done on the day of the event. All those who pre-register will receive at free t-shirt. Those registering on the day of the event can receive a t-shirt for a small donation.
