Now is the time for us to come together... by staying apart.
Now is the time for us to help local non-profits which have seen their donations decrease when the needs in our community are greater than ever.
Now is the time for us to Stay Strong!
During this time of isolation, join together with runners and walkers all over the country in supporting their local charities and organizations.
THIS EVENT BENEFITS:
Founded by the late Harry Chapin, Long Island Cares brings together all available resources for the benefit of the hungry and food insecure on Long Island and, to the best of our ability, provides for the humanitarian needs of our community. Our goals are to improve food security for families, sponsor programs that help families achieve self-sufficiency, and educate the general public about the causes and consequences of hunger on Long Island. Our vision is “A Hunger Free Long Island”.
100% of your race entry fee goes to
Long Island Cares - The Harry Chapin Food Bank!
