Featured Race-Friends of Karen 5K

Please join us for Friends of Karen’s 9th Annual Walk-Run for Friends of Karen! Friends of Karen is a charity that provides emotional, financial and advocacy support to New York Tri-State area families who are caring for a child with cancer or another life-threatening illness, in order to keep them stable, functioning and able to cope.Founded in 1978 to raise funds needed for one terminally-ill child, Karen, during the final stages of her illness, 36 years later more than 13,000 children and their families have received assistance from Friends of Karen. 

This event is a fun and easy way to become involved, meet new people, contribute to an important cause, share our mission with others and to know that when you cross that finish line with us YOU are helping families in our own communities. 

We look forward to having you as part of our team!

I’m not sure when it happened, but there’s definitely been a paradigm shift in our runs since we started trail running with our dog Scout.
