Crossings 5K Challenge & Kids Runs — VIRTUAL for 2020!

THANK YOU for participating in our 17th Annual Crossings 5K Challenge! Your support this year was especially important due to the economic hardship caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mark your calendar for our 18th event

on Sunday, September 26, 2021!

 Join CYC at the Rudy A. Ciccotti Family Recreation Center, a project of the Colonie Youth Center, for our annual Crossings 5K Challenge & Kids Run. Beginning and ending behind the Ciccotti Center, the course allows participants to travel through the beautiful Crossings Park. This community day focuses on family, fun, health and wellness, welcoming more than 1,000 people annually.

The event features a chip-timed 5K, Kids Competitive 1 Mile and Kids 1/4 Mile Fun Run. The Kids Zone provides crafts, games and activities for children. Refreshments, music, sponsor information tables and awards ceremony rounds out the day.

This event serves as CYC’s largest fundraiser, providing funding for CYC’s Scholarship Fund and the Sammy Nathan Scholarship Fund. These programs assist income-eligible families with childcare and health and wellness programming at reduced rates. We seek support from local businesses by offering several different levels of sponsorship, all with opportunities for promotion including print, digital media, on-site billboard and event presence.

No-Cook Thursday

Join CYC at the Rudy A. Ciccotti Family Recreation Center, a project of the Colonie Youth Center, for our annual No-Cook Thursday. This community dinner started in June of 2018, and has featured food from the Outback Steakhouse Colonie. In 2019, the event expanded to include on-site seating with live music and games for kids and families.

We look forward to growing this event every year. Mark your calendar for the first Thursday in June and join us as we kick off summer fun!
