Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS
What we do together, makes a difference
Saturday, April 6, 8:30 am
Governors Island, NYC
Cut footloose, kick off your Sunday shoes and put on your running (or walking) sneakers. Broadway fans and stars alike will trade jazz hands for sweatbands Saturday, April 6, on New York City’s Governors Island for the NYCRUNS Spring Fling 5K & 10K benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
Broadway Cares’ participants pledge to each raise a minimum of $250, which will provide 25 HIV tests or 100 healthy meals for those living with a debilitating illness.
When you reach $25 in donations, we will send you a link to claim your race registration. Pending spot availability, you are welcome to register for either distance: 5K (3.1 miles) or 10K (6.2 miles).
Whether you’re running, walking or “dancing through life,” everyone who participates in the NYCRUNS Spring Fling 5K and 10K and fundraises for Broadway Cares provides meals and medication, health care and hope across all 50 states, Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C.
The course includes stellar views of the ”blue purple yellow red water” of the Hudson River, the Statue of Liberty, Lower Manhattan, the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and more.
As the official nonprofit partner for the Spring Fling, Broadway Cares has a limited number of spots available for runners and walkers. Similar to other charity walkathons, bike rides or marathons, participants make a difference for those in need by asking for online donations. By fundraising with Broadway Cares, you’ll also be invited to an exclusive pre-race party and a post-race picnic, receive a complimentary race registration code and have the chance to compete with other fundraisers and teams for exclusive prizes.
At the first NYCRUNS Spring Fling 5K & 10K benefiting Broadway Cares in March 2023, more than 1,600 participants gathered on Governors Island. The event, which raised $101,891, is the newest component of Broadway Run, a series of events that unite the theater running community. Questions? Contact Julianna Whalen.
