Description

Welcome to the Steel Equities Gold Coast Studios Ho Ho Ho 5K Run! This is a flat, fast 5K on the roads of Bethpage. The special guest starter is SANTA CLAUS!

PLEASE NOTE: IN KEEPING WITH CURRENT COVID-19 PROTOCOLS, FACE MASKS MUST BE WORN WHEN INSIDE THE SCHOOL. NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE.

Amenities

All participants will receive a cozy commemorative sweatshirt!

Charitable Beneficiaries

A portion of the net proceeds will benefit The Opening Word, a 501 (c) 3  nonprofit. 
 
The Opening Word program is hosted by the Dominican Sisters to teach the English language and job readiness skills to immigrant women on Long Island, a population that is often underserved, undereducated and/or underemployed, in order to enable them to become productive, self sufficient members of society, and ultimately to become American citizens.

As in the past, we will be collecting toys for the John Theissen Children's Foundation. Its mission is to provide hospitals and child-care facilities with therapeutic and recreational equipment, to support families with financial assistance to defray medical expenses, to offer sick and needy children toys throughout the holiday season, to fulfill patients' (ages birth to 18 years old) wish lists throughout the year, and to assist sick and underprivileged children. 

Please bring a new, unwrapped toy with you for donation! 

Course

Fast, flat course through the streets of Bethpage.
