On Saturday, August 10, City Parks Foundation, with support from North Shore-LIJ Health System and NYC Council Member Vincent M. Ignizio, hosted the “Get Up & Go! Family Adventure Race” at Conference House Park in Staten Island. Parent-child duos teamed up to compete in the exciting race which required basic exercise and sports skills and, most importantly, teamwork! The course consisted of 14 different activity stations including javelin throw, jump rope, putting, hurdles, and a mini climbing wall. The teams traversed the park to find each one, and both competitors had to properly perform the exercise or task at hand before advancing to the next station. When all 14 activities had been completed, the teams then had to make a final sprint to the finish line!
The competition was friendly, but still fierce!
The top 5 winners in the 8-9 year old bracket were:
1. Shawn and Celia Dulligan
2. M. and Arianna Pilao
3. Scott and Jenna Nicholls
4. Darren and Thira Corona
5. Lorraine and Vincent Pavlick
In the 10-13 year old bracket, the top 5 winners were:
1. Michael and Kai Mercado
