About the event

This inaugural event is designed to help children and families served by Seamen's Society. The 5K will be held, rain or shine, in Clove Lakes Park on Staten Island, NY. All proceeds will benefit the Robert and Barbara Fitzsimmons Children and Family Fund at Seamen’s Society, which provides  experiential opportunities (camp, music lessons, recreational sports, art classes, boxing classes) that are not covered by government funding. Established in 2021, the fund is already making a difference in our youths’ summer activities.

Event Time & Meeting Place

Registration will start at 10:30 a.m. on September 19. We are meeting behind Stonehenge (the NYC Parks Building), just beyond the intersection of Victory Blvd. and Clove Rd.

It is requested that you please register for the event here as, due to Park regulations, we cannot process registrations on site. Thank you for your understanding.

Parking: , please plan on parking on Victory Boulevard or Clove Road and follow the signs and/or volunteer directions. The parking lot for the park will likely be at capacity.

T-shirts & Swag Bags: T-shirts and swag bags are guaranteed to those participants who registered prior to August 25. 

About Seamen’s Society

Founded in 1846, Seamen’s Society for Children and Families is a New York nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening and securing the safety and well-being of children and families entrusted to our care. Our programs protect and care for our communities’ most vulnerable children, while strengthening families living with mental illness, alcohol addiction, substance abuse, domestic/intimate partner violence, and other circumstances which can threaten a child’s safety and future.

Health & Safety

Seamen's Society is closely monitoring updates and following all current CDC guidelines, as well as New York State and City protocols and restrictions. We will follow all mandates in place on the day of the event. Every effort is being made to make the event as safe and enjoyable as possible for all participants.

That said, in the interest of public and participant health and safety, participants will be required to wear a mask for pre- and post run/walk activities. While actively walking or running, masks are optional. This information is subject to change.

At the event we will have two water stations. Unfortunately, this year we are unable to provide food. Individuals are welcome to bring their own snacks/food.
