About This Activity

Race registration closes at 9:00 am on Friday, September 27thKids age 13 and under register free! 

Day for Kids is a day of celebration.  We ask YOU to join us in making a difference for kids in our community. For more than 25 years, adults and children alike have participated in our Day for Kids event to advocate for youth. Day for Kids celebrates the life-changing work taking place at Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club throughout the year.

The memorial run commemorates the life of a local true hero, NYPD Deputy Chief Steven Bonano, with two memorial runs. The run is divided into two segments; the first stretch is led by our youth followed by the adult participants. Mr. Bonano grew up in our community, attended Kips Bay as a youngster, and continued to make mentoring visits to the Clubhouse throughout his stellar NYPD career.

This annual street fair launches our fall programming and allows children to enroll as Club members. Youngsters and their parents also learn about Kips Bay programs, such as: teen and pre-teen leadership and character development, career/college exploration, athletics, academics, performing arts, and much more. Our typical Day for Kids event attendance is in the thousands community members and others. Sponsors have a unique opportunity to reach the community and support Kips Bay.​
