Run a 5K with Dre!

Are you ready to begin your path towards next year's marathon? Or perhaps you've been curious about what is like to take a run by the riverside, with a view of the Manhattan Skyline and the Brooklyn Bridge? Or perhaps you haven't started running because you don't like to run alone?

Whatever the reason, we would like to invite our members to join Dre Pabon and the Mastermind Connect for a nice 5k (3.1 miles) run! After participating in running events in multiple cities, Dre has taken the initiative to share his passion with fellow Mastermind Connect members. He has even created a training plan (see bottom of page) to get you ready for that end of summer date.

On September 23rd, we’ll start at the beginning of the Brooklyn Bridge Park, at Jay Street, and run the promenade towards Red Hook for 1.5 miles. We’ll then run back towards 68 Jay Street to complete the 5K.

We will base camp at 68 Jay Street, Suite #704, Brooklyn, NY 11201 at 10 am. Everyone will be able to change, dress and leave their bags there.

Once we get back, we’ll do a light cool down stretch and have some beers for those so inclined to do so (beers will be provided by Brooklyn Brewery) on the rooftop!

Below is the plan to follow before our 5K run. Even if you're not at the top of your game, you have 6 weeks to condition yourself for it:

Master Mind in a Master Body Hip-Hop Yoga Event

Men all over the world are awakening to a feeling of stepping into a more conscious brotherhood. As we do so, there is a need for support and connection with one another.

So far, we have created wellness events that test our physical limits by pushing us to work as fast and hard as our bodies could handle via high intensity interval training workouts. This time, we are looking to take a different approach; we're doing a Vinyasa Yoga, in a candlelit studio, to the beat of hip-hop music!

All funds collected will go towards the Y7 Studio Moves For Knowledge campaign,
joining the buildOn movement to break the cycle of poverty one school at a time.  They are asking you to help in raising money to build a school with the people of Haiti, to ensure that there is a safe space for their children to learn and grow.

Suggested donation is $25. Click here details.
