Running and walking are not on 'Pause', and we would like to invite you to participate in our virtual 5k/walk for brain cancer. All proceeds will be donated to Allivea Maxon's family from Hilton NY, and Craig Winter's family from Pittsford NY. Allivea battled Pilocytic Astrocytoma brain cancer since she was 8 months old, she lost her battle with this horrible disease on February 11, 2020 at the age of 6 years old. Craig is a 10 year old who has been battling a neuronal glioma since he was 2 years old. These kids and their families have endured more than anyone should ever have to. We hope you will virtually join us in supporting these families.
Covid -19 will not stop us from running and walking! This is the fifth annual 5k run and 1 mile walk in memory of Desiree Stockholm who was a Nurse Practitioner at Strong Memorial Hospital. Proceeds from this event will be donated to Allivea Maxon, a 6 year old from Hilton NY who has Pilocytic Astrocytoma, unfortunately Allivea has lost her battle to brain cancer on February 11, 2020, and Craig Winter, a 10 year old from Pittsford NY who is battling a neuronal glioma. Lets come together and help these families with lost wages and medical expenses. We all need community support more than ever before at this scary time of the Coronavirus. We hope you will continue to support our event and the local recipient families. Virtual 5K participants will be asked to complete a 5K run by themselves following social distancing guidelines between Friday, June 5 at 6 a.m. through Sunday, June 7 at 11 p.m. The medals will be mailed out the week of June 8, 2020, or you can pick them up in Fairport on June 6. We would love to have you post your picture on our facebook page, tag us on twitter #braincancersuks or instagram #runnrrobin.

The Covid 19 is causing us to go virtual for our events so everyone can participate solo to adhere with social distancing and gatherings.
The events of the past few weeks and months have been unpredictable and unprecedented. We’ve had many sleepless nights planning an event that is now 71 days away. And we know you have been looking forward to this community event and supporting Allivea Maxon’s family and Craig Winter and family while bringing awareness to this horrible disease: brain cancer.
East Rochester High School is still on board with hosting our 5k event on June 6, 2020. We are continuing our planning for the event along with various contingencies. The public events such as this have not been cancelled or postponed as of yet for May or June of 2020.
If you have any questions, we’d love to hear from you. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond to everyone. If it takes a little while to hear from us, please be patient, it just means we’ve heard from a lot of you! We always strive to be a good community partner, and now is a time we all need to work together as a community and society to get through this crisis.
We hope everyone remains positive through this difficult time. We are all in this together and together we will get through it. Keep running and walking outside, this is something that you can still do as NYS remains on “Pause.”
Thank you for your continued patience, understanding and support. We will keep you updated, please consider joining us on June 6th! Kick Covid-19 to the curb!
