About This Activity

Please join in the 3rd Annual Finland Center Midsummer 5K Run which is held at Prospect Park, Brooklyn.  This is a charity run, the proceeds of which will be used to support the Syrian Women's Forum for Peace through Donor Direct Action.  Starting point/Finish Line are at Bartels Lot in the southwestern edge of the park (subway stations nearby).  First place prizes will be supplied by Karhu, and all runners will receive a T-shirt; Lumene cosmetics; and discount coupons from Karhu and The Running Company. A $50 gift card to Sockerbit will be raffled among all the runners. Pre race pick up of kits and t-shirts will be on June 14th at The Running Company at the Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle.  Post race water and yummy sandwiches will be supplied with Nordic Breads' Finnish Ruis Rye bread and Finlandia cheese.

The Syrian Women's Forum for Peace aims to activate Syrian and international public opinion to lobby decision makers to adopt peaceful political means to build a democratic state. More here
