2020 Memorial Day Virtual Flag 5K Run/Walk for our Heroes presented by Staten Island Running Association, Inc. with running legends Bill Rodgers, Rod Dixon & Eamonn Coghlan#VirtualFlag5K #StatenIslandRunning #quaRUNtine
Since SIRA cannot host our annual Memorial Day 5K in a Staten Island park, we felt it's more important than ever to keep this tradition alive while encouraging runners and walkers to stay active. We can all still get out to run or walk in our local neighborhood or park while maintaining appropriate social distancing guidelines, and raise funds to support those who are fighting on the front lines to keep us healthy and safe.
Once you run or walk your 5K between May 23 and May 26, you'll be able to post your finisher time and see all finisher results.
The net proceeds raised will support hospitals, healthcare workers, first line defenders and food distribution organizations to help Staten Islanders and New Yorkers survive and triumph during these incredibly difficult times.
Donations will be made to:
Staten Island University Hospital
Richmond University Medical Center
Meals on Wheels
Volunteer Heart Ambulance
Staten Island High School Track & Field Association
