All virtual runners will be mailed a PEP Race shirt and information about the program!
PEP stands for Phys Ed Plus, a New York City nonprofit committed to getting phys ed programs back into city schools. Did you know that 96 percent of New York City elementary schools fail to meet the mandate for 120 minutes a week of phys ed? Only 30 percent of elementary schools even have a certified physical education teacher on staff! PEP aims to bring phys ed back to kids and communities by creating awareness and establishing flexible, unique in-school programs that will get kids active and build healthy habits for the future.
The money we raise will help us work with five schools in Harlem to meet the city’s mandate and get real phys ed teachers in school so we can foster healthy, happy kids.
