Life is a Journey Run/Walk: Virtual COVID-19 Edition @ Anywhere
Sep 15 – Dec 15 all-day

Life has certainly set us all on an unexpected path in 2020, and due to public health concerns, this year’s race, originally scheduled for October, has now gone virtual! With the incomparable beauty of Keuka Lake as our guide, participants can choose their challenge option: virtually run or walk the entire 73-mile perimeter of Keuka Lake or make your way tip-to-tip from Penn Yan to Hammondsport (22 miles). Challenge yourself or form a team, and record and track your daily mileage online. All participants will receive a one-of-a-kind, special edition race shirt. All race proceeds after expenses will go to support the Keuka Comfort Care Home, whose mission to provide compassionate end-of-life care to those who have reached the end of their journey is more critical than ever. For more information and to register to take the Life Is A Journey Challenge, visit http://keukacomfortcarehome.org/10k/

12th Annual Scare Brain Cancer Away 5K run/walk and 1.5 mile walk @ East Rochester High School
Oct 24 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am

This is a fast flat course through the quaint Village of East Rochester. The race is a part of the “Rochester Runner of the Year Series” and receives outstanding support from residents that cheer participants to the finish line. This year’s event benefits the Wilmot Cancer Institute’s Patient Needs Fund and, prior to the start, we will honor the memories of past race participant Paul Wenger and longtime East Rochester resident and community leader Dave Bonacci.

About the Wilmot Cancer Institute’s Patient Needs Fund:  The Patient Needs Fund is a donation-based fund for patients under cancer treatment at the Wilmot Cancer Institute.  Assistance can be provided to patients in the form of gift cards to local gas, grocery, and general merchandise stores such as Kwik Fill, Wegmans, and Target.  Often patients need money for gas as many are driving from outside or on the outskirts of Monroe County for treatment daily or weekly.  Target and Wegmans gift cards are typically used for food or every day needs of patients.  The amount provided is based upon the patient’s needs; as many patients as possible can be assisted with a donation to this unique fund.  This is the power of the Patient Needs Fund; patients are able to focus more on their treatment and fighting cancer, and not on the financial burden that so many of us have. 

Come dressed in a costume for an opportunity to win a gift certificate to a local restaurant. And, as always, there is plenty of food and the opportunity to take home some great goodies from the bake sale that is put on annually by the family of Steve Ross, the original recipient of funds from this event.

You must be registered by September 30th to guarantee a T-shirt. Groups/teams welcome! Register your team right here on RunSignUp and your whole group will be acknowledged when we present the check to the Needs Fund.
