About This Activity


Former NY Islander Steve Webb's W20 Foundation is partnering with The John Thiessen Foundation and St. John of God Roller Hockey for our 1st Annual Team Up 4 Community 5K Run/Walk at Hecksher State Park.  Please bring a new unwrapped toy to donate.

This run benefits the W20 Foundation's Team Up 4 Community (TU4C) Program, which works to promote social responsibility through athletics. By participating in community service TU4C fosters young peoples’ senses of civic engagement and community and helps them achieve their educational, developmental and social goals. Community service ultimately helps impact the areas we live in by creating a sense of pride and duty to return to society some of the benefits that society has given to the volunteers.

Through TU4C, we are continuously working to increase awareness of the importance of community giveback in our youth by offering community service challenges and providing scholarships and grants to deserving students, teams, schools, and organizations.

The race will be professionally timed by Just Timing Inc. This is a USATF certified course and sanctioned event.

Dry Fit Short Sleeve Running Shirts will be given away to the first 100 Registrants.

There will be post-race food and refreshments provided by HURRICANES GRILL & WINGS and PANERA BREAD.
