Public Prep Memorial Day 5K & 10K
Monday, May 30th, 2016 8:30 AMIf you haven't raced at Roosevelt Island before, you're in for a treat. Fast, flat and with one of a kind views of Manhattan, Queens, and beyond: you're going to have a blast!
Fewer than 1 in 5 NYC public high school graduates complete college, and Public Prep is committed to change that by providing an exceptional PreK-8th grade educational foundation for our scholars and helping to place them in top independent, parochial, and public high schools. In addition, Public Prep schools address other barriers to college completion early on, including family and scholar commitment, financial preparation, and non-cognitive skills such as emotional intelligence.
Public Prep's unique partnership with NY's 529 College Savings Program educates our students & families about the importance of college savings. In addition, Public Prep provides a $50 matching incentive for families who open up accounts for their sons and daughters to encourage them to #racetosave. We are grateful to NY 529's College Savings Program committing to be a Gold Sponsor of this event.
