The Brooklyn Cyclones baseball team sponsors an annual 5K run to raise funding for a select cause or institution that benefits the New York public. This year, the fundraising event will raise money for the YMCA of Greater New York.
Participants can choose any participating YMCA branch to receive their donations. On July 15, runners will start at Surf Avenue and finish at home plate of the Cyclones' MCU Park. In addition, event benefactors will enjoy free food and beverages to refuel post-run and also receive tickets eligible to view up to three Brooklyn Cyclones games.
Broadway Stages President Gina Argento has been an avid financial supporter of YMCA events, with this month's 5K run being no exception. Gina has regularly supported the YMCA at Greenpoint and the YMCA Strong Kids' Campaign, and she is a recent recipient of the YMCA Volunteer of the Year Award.
Following in Gina's footsteps is Anthony Fong, General Counsel of Broadway Stages and a board member of Flushing YMCA. Anthony joined the board in 2017 and has financially supported the Flushing YMCA to reach its campaign goals for the 5K run.
Gina and Anthony encourage you to join the YMCA for a day of funding and fun. What are you waiting for? Sign up for the run on July 15 and show your support for the YMCA!
