Jamaica, Queens is known as a vibrant hub of strength, community and culture. This 5.5K run is designed to promote a meaningful community connection through a day of fitness and physical activity. The course route will promote attention on Downtown Jamaica’s commercial corridors and highlight historic landmarks throughout the neighborhood.
This day of celebration will culminate with family activities and music, while creating a positive economic impact with net proceeds being donated to The Y afterschool program at P.S 40 and P.S 48 to help families with school supplies.
