Join Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS for Second Annual Broadway Run, Nov. 5

Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS is gearing up for its second annual Broadway Run, and we would love to have SAG-AFTRA runners join the team. Our inaugural run last year - the Poland Spring Marathon Kickoff - raised almost $10,000 and was a huge success.

When: 8:30 a.m., Saturday, Nov. 5 (The day before the New York City Marathon)

Where: Manhattan (Click here for course details)

We are running the Dash to the Finish Line 5K, a 3.1 mile run through the streets of Manhattan that ends at the famed Marathon finish line in Central Park. You’ll get to experience the NYC Marathon festivities without having to run 26.2 miles. The Broadway Run team is open to anyone and everyone – runners, joggers, and walkers are all welcome. It’s about joining together as passionate community members and raising money for a great cause.

Registration: Interested runners can register for the race here. Once registered, forward your confirmation email to runwithus@broadwaycares.org and we will send you instructions on how to set up your individual fundraising page. The goal for each runner is to raise $200. Runners who reach that goal will receive a Broadway Run t-shirt. Prizes will also be awarded to the top three fundraisers.

All money raised will go directly to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and donations are 100 percent tax-deductible. Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS is the major supporter of the social service programs at The Actors Fund, including the HIV/AIDS Initiative, The Dancers’ Resource, the Phyllis Newman Women’s Health Initiative and the Al Hirschfeld Free Health Clinic.

Feel free to reach out with any questions to runwithus@broadwaycares.org. We look forward to hearing from you.
