On Sunday, April 6, 2014 hundreds of participants gathered at the historic Prospect Park in Brooklyn NY, for a 5K Walk/Run Race for the purpose of raising awareness and funds for several worthy organizations.

A professional chip timed the course and top finisher awards were prepared for the competitive runners. There was a live DJ, professional pre-race warm-up & stretch with Brooklynettes, a professional announcer; Charity customized Generosity T-Shirts and finisher medals.
