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.
