Go the Extra Mile - Goodwill 5K Walk/Run event on Oct 1st!

On October 1st, Goodwill, GoodTemps’ parent organization, will be hosting their first Run/Walk event in support of our collective mission to enhance the lives of people with disabilities or other barriers to employment. All are welcome and encouraged to attend - this promises be a great, uplifting and inspiring day for many.<br /><br />The Run/Walk will be held at Flushing Meadow Park in Corona, Queens starting at 8.30am. The event is split into two stages - a 5KM (3.1 miles) run, and a 3KM (1.86 mile) walk - you can participate in either, or both!

What can I do?

  1. Run!<br/>If you love running, the 5KM event is the perfect fit for you, taking you around Flushing Meadow Park, and the Unisphere.
  2. Walk!<br/>If you’re not a fan of running, or don’t feel up to it, there’s a leisurely 3KM walk. Stroll with friends and family, and help make a difference for people with disabilities.
  3. Volunteer<br/>If you feel you can contribute in other ways, contact the Goodwill Run/Walk team at <a href=""> to see what volunteering opportunities are available for the event.

<br />General registration for the Run/Walk consists of a donation of $20.
