Welcome to all runners, walkers, and volunteers…


I would like to express my gratitude for your participation in our inaugural Riverdale Temple 5K Fall Run/Walk. The main goal of this event is to bring our Riverdale and surrounding communities together to do something healthy.


Here, you will find all our race details, including packet pick-up, race logistics and preparedness, and post-race celebration.


Your participation in this event, whether as a participant or as a volunteer, helps support Riverdale Temple programming, and ensures that much-needed resources are in place for the entire community’s benefit. As we continue to provide and grow our current community programming, such as movie nights, karaoke nights, community Labor Day barbecue, fitness and wellness classes, high holiday celebrations, mommy and me programming, Jewish Adult Education — and much more — your financial support by participating and/or donating to this amazing event makes this day much more special!


Riverdale Temple is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 1947, and offers people from all walks of life a vibrant, progressive, multi-generational Reform Jewish community right here in Riverdale. We are committed to a warm, caring, inclusive approach to Jewish life, and we celebrate the beautiful diversity of our membership. Our community consists of young and old, singles and couples, young families, members of the LGBTQIA+, and includes those from Jewish and non-Jewish backgrounds.


Through our dedication to tikkun olam, or repairing the world, we initiate and/or take part in many forms of community outreach including grocery collections, clothing drives, and our own Mitzvah Day, an annual day of community service focusing on projects within and outside the Temple to serve others in the larger community. For this event, we are asking for you to bring a shelf-stable food item with you to the race, where it will be collected in support of Friendly Fridge BX, an organization that helps redirect 30 tons of food on a monthly basis to those who are food insecure. Your donations can help make a difference in someone’s life and help keep nutritious food out of the landfills.


Please feel free to email me for any further questions,


“Run/walk the mile you are in, be present in the moment, have fun and make memories.”
