Presented by the Sinai Hospital Auxiliary
Event Chair - Julie Levine
Join us for the tenth annual Race for Our Kids presented by the Sinai Hospital Auxiliary on Sunday, September 21, 2014. The race features 5K and 10K courses, as well as a 1 Mile Family Fun Walk, and offers something for everyone - from the elite runner to the novice weekend warrior. Amenities include cash prizes (10K overall winners only), a long-sleeved technical shirt and a post-race party sponsored by The Classic Catering People.
The 5K and 10K courses offer rolling hills and beautiful scenery throughout the Mt. Washington neighborhood. You can run or walk the 5K (3.1 miles) course and it is a great distance for those looking for more than the 1-mile walk distance. The 10K (6.2 miles) race is more challenging and features $4,100 in cash prizes for the top winners. Please note, no strollers or pets will be permitted on the 5K or 10K race routes for the safety of all participants.
1 Mile Family Fun Walk
The 1 Mile Family Fun Walk course is around the Sinai Hospital campus and is ideal for families with children. The Sinai Hospital Auxiliary hosts an interactive, themed event with lots of fun surprises! Strollers are permitted on the 1 Mile Family Walk route. Pets are not permitted. There is no fee for children 5 and under to participate, but we do ask that you register them so we can have the appropriate number of supplies for the walk, as well as a waiver for their participation.
Where does the money go?
All proceeds from Race for Our Kids benefit The Herman & Walter Samuelson Children's Hospital at Sinai. At the heart of our Department of Pediatrics is the concept of family-centered care. Based on the knowledge that family is the constant in a child’s life, family-centered care is built on partnerships between families and health professionals during and after a child is treated for a diagnosed illness. Philanthropic funds support numerous projects across the Department of Pediatrics. Patient assistance funds help families with transportation to and from treatment, medical bills not covered by insurance, and prescriptions. Other funds provide toys for the playroom, arts and crafts for young patients, and video games and movies for inpatient rooms. In addition, ongoing research and clinical trials are funded by the generosity of community and corporate foundations.
