CHIPS 5K Run & Walk
Saturday, November 5th, 2016 10:00 AMCome to Prospect Park for a 5K Run/Walk to raise awareness and support for CHIPS. Since 1971, CHiPS has been a community of Brooklyn neighbors, volunteers, and friends who help those who are less fortunate. They prepare over 100,000 nutritious meals per year and serve them to the needy in a caring and respectful environment. In addition to meals, they offer seasonal clothing and distribute pantry bags each Friday, to those in need. In addition, the Frances Residency Program provides transitional homes for nine prenatal and postpartum homeless women and their infants. The women can stay up to twelve months while they are working toward self-reliance and the acquisition of permanent housing. Awards will go to the top male and female runners as well as the male and female with the best 80s costume. All participants receive a souvenir T-shirt.
