BRONX, N.Y. - Sept. 19, 2016 - PRLog -- The 10th Annual Hunts Point Hustle Run/Walk will take place Saturday, October 1st at Hunts Point Riverside Park in the Bronx at 10:00 a.m. This event supports and celebrates the work of Sustainable South Bronx (SSBx), a division of The HOPE Program, which makes the Bronx – and New York City – more environmentally and economically sustainable through green jobs training and placement as well as transitional employment opportunities in green construction and maintenance.

All runners, walkers, and community members are welcome! Online registration will be open through noon September 30th. On-site registration will be available on race day starting at 9:00 a.m. at Hunts Point Riverside Park, at Edgewater Road and Lafayette Avenue in the Bronx.

Race entry fee is $30 or $10 for Bronx residents with the discount code "Bronx." This event features a chip-timed 5K run/walk course, great swag, water along the route, post-race snacks, free shuttle from the subway (Hunts Point Avenue 6 train), prizes, access to Hunts Point Riverside Park, and the opportunity to support green jobs training! A special feature this year is free community rowing for all participants, volunteers, spectators and community members, provided by Rocking the Boat.

Coca-Cola is the lead sponsor of the Hunts Point Hustle. Additional sponsors include Waste Management, Monadnock Construction, Diego Beekman, Runa, Rocking the Boat, Bronx River Alliance, Rebuilding Together, and University Neighborhood Housing Program (UNHP).

This race marks the first anniversary of Sustainable South Bronx joining forces with The HOPE Program, an award-winning workforce development program serving men and women from all five New York City boroughs. Since launching our partnership, SSBx has expanded to offer three cycles of green job training, and re-invigorated our social enterprise, which hires training grads, predominately Bronx residents, for green construction and maintenance projects across the city.

"I am so proud of what Sustainable South Bronx and HOPE have achieved together over the past year. I can't think of a more perfect celebration of environment, jobs and brighter futures than a run/walk through Hunts Point and a community gathering at the historic Hunts Point Riverside Park," said Jennifer Mitchell the Executive Director at SSBx. "I'd like to share my sincere thanks to the sponsors and community partners who help make this event a success!"
