From The SSG Michael Ollis Freedom Foundation:

The second annual Staff Sergeant Michael Ollis Memorial 5K Run/2-mile Walk & Festival will take place on Sunday, June 10 from 8:30 a.m. to noon.

The race is named after the 24-year-old U.S. Army veteran who was killed in Afghanistan on Aug. 28, 2013 while shielding a wounded Polish soldier from an insurgent’s suicide vest. The race is  also designed to raise funds for veterans through the SSG Michael Ollis Freedom Foundation.

A $30 early-bird registration is now open for all participants who sign up before May 1.  The fee increases to $35 after that is $40 after on race day. All participants who register prior to May 10 will receive a shirt.

Participants can sign up for the run/walk, sign up to volunteer, and/or submit donations at runsignup.com/Race/NY/StatenIsland/Ollis

 

The race route and run-of-show will be virtually the same as last year. The event program will begin at 8:30 AM on Sunday, June 10th, at New Dorp Lane and New Dorp Plaza South…with the race kicking off at 9:00 AM and a street festival featuring live music, food, entertainment, children’s activities including a special Kid’s Race, and various vendors/merchants to follow (10AM – 12PM). The route for the 5K will entail a loop around the Staten Island Railway (SIR) between Ross Avenue and Jefferson Avenue, with an abridged 2-mile route for walkers. After the race, an awards ceremony and street festival will take place on New Dorp Lane between New Dorp Plaza and 10th Street.
