The LES 5K Revel Run will support University Settlement’s after school program, which provides tutoring, mentorship, sports, arts, music and so much more to students throughout the Lower East Side! This year, all the funds we raise in Pavel’s honor will provide paid internship opportunities for seniors at East Side High School as they get ready for post-secondary success.

Please click below to see the full list of sponsorship details and associated perks. If you’d like to pay via credit card, you can do so within the ticketing section of this webpage.

If you’d like to pay via check, please fill out the sponsorship form HERE and email it back to Shykia Fields at sfields@universitysettlement.org

The LES 5K Revel Run is our biggest fundraiser for University Settlement’s after school program. If you can’t attend but want to support this effort, your money will be invested directly into our partnership with students at East Side Community High School, to offer engaging internships that will support their growth as they look toward post-secondary success. 

And if you’re not going to be in town with us that’s ok. You can still participate, and we’d love to have you! You can run, walk, skip or jump the 5k from wherever you are. To join us online, post a picture or video of you supporting this great cause on your social media platforms with the hashtag #LESRevelRun2023.
