We had our largest turnout ever at the 7th Annual Hunts Point Hustle on October 5th, 2013! Two hundred ninety-six people finished the 5K, which started at Hunts Point Riverside Park and ended at Barretto Point Park. Race finishers and other friends of SSBx gathered at Barretto Point Park for a celebration that included a yoga class, Blink! Fitness boot camp, food, music, kids’ activities, and a raffle.
We’d like to send a huge congratulations to everyone who participated in the race, and especially to our winners, David Knowles and Saudy Tejada. A list of all of the race results can be found here.
The event was a great success thanks to the generous corporate sponsors and individual donors who supported the Hustle. Funds raised from the event will support all of our programs, including our work on the South Bronx Greenway, our BEST Academy green jobs training program, our energy efficiency program, and our community greening initiatives.
Event sponsors included: Coca-Cola, Floyd Advisory, Waste Management, Sims Metal Management, Magnusson Architecture and Planning, Melrose and Associates, Cutsogeorge Tooman and Allen Architects, PC, Galaxy GC, Action Carting, and Your Part-Time Controller.
Race winner and raffle prizes were donated by: JetBlue airlines, Jazz at Lincoln Center, The Bronx Museum of Art, Bronx Havana Cafe, Blink! Fitness, the New York Yankees, The Clock Bar, the Bronx Zoo, and the New York Botanical Garden.
