Everyone who knew Hope knows that, whether it was softball or boxing, athletics, physical achievement, and the spirit of competition were always an important part of Hope’s life. For that reason, what could be a more appropriate way to raise money for the Hope Reichbach Fund than a 5K walk/run?
On April 28th at 9 AM, please join the friends of Hope for a 5K (3.1 mile) walk/run around Prospect Park. For the $27 registration fee, which will go directly to the Hope Reichbach Fund, you will get a spot in the race, receive an official individual race time, and be provided with refreshments. For $35, you will receive all of the above and a t-shirt. Even if you don’t quite feel up to running, we encourage you to join us for the walk: it takes only about an hour to walk 3.1 miles at a regular pace. Or you can donate and then join us at 12 PM, at Hope’s Tree in Borough Hall Park (in front of the State Supreme Court, near the Christopher Columbus statue; take the 2/3/4/5 to Borough Hall, N/R to Court Street ar A/C/F to Jay St/Metrotech) to celebrate the fund and to commemorate Hope and Gus on the second anniversary of Hope’s death.
To register, simply sign up on the Run for Hope Crowdrise site.
Also, be sure to join the Run for Hope Facebook Event!
The friends of Hope believe that together, through dedication and hard work, we can achieve something great: we can work to achieve a more equitable, more just NYC. If you share that common goal, be sure to run with us on the 28th!
