Sat September 26 - Sat October 10, 2020
Going the distance for St. Joseph's Children's Hospital
Countdown to Race Day
Description

 

For nine years, Sax has supported St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital in Paterson, NJ through the 4 Miler at Garret Mountain run/walk event.  Since the event’s inception in 2012, Sax has raised over $535,000 for the hospital’s Child Life Department, providing high-impact holistic therapies to their pediatric patients. 

The Child Life Department does wonders mitigating the negative effects of hospitalization, particularly for pediatric patients with chronic, life-threatening or terminal illness.  These therapies are funded only by outside support, and together, with our event sponsors, donors, participants and volunteers, the 4 Miler has proudly become the largest financial contributor of the Child Life Department. 

This year, we won’t let the coronavirus slow us down.  We invite you to show your support by signing up for our virtual fundraising event.

Will you join us in going the distance for the pediatric patients of St. Joseph’s?

Why Participate? 

These are tough times for us all as we are home bound, riding out this pandemic, but it’s important to remember that this is the norm for many children every day dealing with chronic, life-threatening or terminal illness. 

Through Sax’s virtual 4 Miler event, our mission is to get out and get moving for those pediatric patients who are unable to do so.  Together, we can raise funds that are used to alleviate the children’s burdens and bring smiles to their faces while they battle illness and undergo treatment.
