The Middle Finger 5K

When my son, Max, completed his treatments for rare brain cancer,  I knew I wanted to give back to the community that rallied for us when we were facing our most difficult days. With each sunrise during his diagnosis, we found hope of another day. On a whim, I decided to organize a sunrise run with all proceeds going to Thrive To Survive to support those battling cancer in the Finger Lakes. 100% of donations directly support those in our communities. 

The name.... well, Seneca Lake is (one of) the Middle Finger Lakes.... although some may have a metaphorical meaning.

We certainly give a one-finger salute to cancer!! ♥
