Virtual 5K Fundraiser for Friends of the Children New York


If you plan to walk/run the Virtual 5K on your own or in a socially distanced group, please be sure to register for the event.  Additional details will be emailed to you upon registration.

The Friends of the Children New York Virtual 5K Walk/Run is taking place between November 14th and November 21st, and those who are planning to participate virtually can complete the 5K on any day during that week. We will host an opportunity to join us in person for a socially distanced walk/run on the morning of Saturday, November 21st at 10 am in Manhattan as well as a virtual awards celebration at 4 pm on the same date. 

Friends NY is breaking the cycle of generational poverty by providing the most vulnerable children with a long-term, professional mentor called a Friend from kindergarten through high school graduation – 12 + years no matter what.

Friends of the Children New York is a nonprofit organization that demands equity for marginalized communities and supports overcoming decades of oppression for people of color and those living in poverty.
