About This Activity

Event details and schedule

Come join us on Sunday, September 14, 2014 at 9:00 am at 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. We prepare over 100,000 nutritious meals per year and serve them to the needy in a caring and respectful environment.  In addition to meals, we 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.
Please visit for more information.

Course: The race course will begin on the west drive of the park at 11th Avenue (Prospect Southwest)  and loop around until the finish line at 11th Street (Prospect Park West). One water station will be positioned on the course. A course map can be found here
