Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation 16th Annual Family Fun 5K Run/Walk

The Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation 16th Annual Family Fun 5K Run/Walk will be held Saturday, May 4, 2019 at Tymor Park, 249 Duncan Road, Lagrangeville, NY 12540. It is presented by the mid-Hudson Road Runners Club.

The race honors Michelle Haass and Keri Tropiano-Sakowich .

This year the Angels of Light of Hudson Valley will not hold their 5K fundraiser, but instead, have formed a team to participate in the Miles of Hope Race. People joining the Angels of Hope Team will register for the benefit of Miles of Hope, but for an additional $25 will receive a T shirt and support for Angels of Light. Confused? OK, it’s an opportunity to run in one race and, if you choose, to support two causes.

The pre-registration entry fee for the 5K is $25, race day $35.

Entry is free for kids who pre-register for the 1 Mile Run. Race Day is $10.
