READY, SET, GO...Registration is Open!

As we all have navigated through the uncertainties of 2020, our 46-member Child Advocacy Centers did not pause, but continued in their mission to provide FREE services, support, and healing to over 19,000 abused children and their families in a COVID-safe environment.
In 2020, New York State saw a significant rise in child deaths and severe cases of physical abuse. The statewide demand for services, training and assistance continues to grow.  We need your help, now more than ever.  Here's your chance to make a difference.

This year's virtual 5K will be held from September 17th-September 19th.  Anyone, any age, anywhere can participate.
Simply select the day, the time, and the route--even hop on a treadmill.  Individuals may choose their preferred exercise
(run, walk, bike, hike etc.) to complete the 5K (3.1 miles) at their own pace; in one day or three.

You can register for the One Too Many NY 5K  UNTIL THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 16th.

Please Note:  The deadline for race t-shirts has passed.  

Running Buddy Bandanas:  You can still register and purchase a "Running Buddy" bandana.  NYSCA will mail it to you. 
However, we cannot guarantee delivery by the 5K dates.

REGISTER HERE by Sept. 16th
