“All are welcome to run for time or run for the first time!” said Event organizer and chairman Lori Decker, local community activist, athletic trainer and co-owner of Forza Fitness in Millbrook.
“This event which I started for my clients has blossomed into a wonderful event for beginners, seasoned runners running to qualify for bigger races, and kids. Everyone should feel comfortable running and welcoming Spring on April 23, at beautiful Tymor Park!” she said.
Miles of Hope Executive Director, Pari Forood added: “The Family Fun Run has raised over $200,000 for Miles of Hope programs since its inception 13 years ago. We are indebted to Lori Decker who has run this event from the beginning for all of her hard work and enthusiasm. She can convince anyone to run! And as a marathon runner herself, she knows the benefits of staying in shape to reduce cancer risk.”
Miles of Hope, a 501-c-3, public charity, funds support services for people affected by breast cancer within the 8 counties of the Hudson Valley.
“We are the only local breast cancer foundation funding programs in the 8 counties: scholarships for high school seniors whose lives have been affected by breast cancer; complementary medicine programs at area hospitals; a Peer to Peer hotline with trained survivors ready to answer questions; and a fund for financial emergencies for people in treatment for breast cancer,” explained Miles of Hope co-Founder Cathy Varunok.
The Family Fun Run honors two Hudson Valley women and breast cancer survivors: Marie Cole and Barbara Bennett. For more information on them: http://milesofhope.org/funrun/

Galleria at Crystal Run Makes Holiday Donation

The Galleria at Crystal Run

The Galleria at Crystal Run in Middletown presents Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation Executive Director, Pari Forood, with a donation of $500 for breast cancer services in the Hudson Valley.

“Amidst all of the holiday cheer and busy schedules, the Galleria at Crystal Run made sure that their donation to help people affected by breast cancer within the 8 counties of the Hudson Valley was received,” Ms. Forood said.
 
“We have the privilege of helping hundreds of people in Orange County, and all over the Hudson Valley when they are in treatment for breast cancer and when they are in remission. We help caregivers and families of patients, and we fund other nonprofit organizations that deliver services to breast cancer patients,” Ms. Forood added.
 
“Thanks to Laci Johnson, Marketing Director at the Galleria and Stacy Decker, Customer Service Supervisor, for organizing this campaign. When organizations raise money for us, we are able to help more people. The generosity of businesses and individuals in the Hudson Valley continues to overwhelm us.”
 

Texas Roadhouse Raises the Bar!

Texas-RoadhouseIn order to ‘stomp out breast cancer’ with ‘pink cowboy boots’, Kingston Texas Roadhouse owner Adam Smith ran several promotions at his restaurant to raise money for the Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation. In the photograph (right), Miles of Hope Executive Director Pari Forood stands with Mr. Smith and the giant donation check for $1,534.

“We sold t-shirts with pink cowboy boots on them, we accepted donations at all cash registers, we had pin ups on the walls and we gave proceeds from all sales in October all to raise money for Miles of Hope,” explained Mr. Smith.
“We know what Miles of Hope is doing for our area and the people who need help when they are diagnosed with breast cancer. If you are not part of the solution, you don’t realize the extent of the problem. Everyone in our organization kicked in (pun intended!) to help and we were really pleased with the result,” he added.

Miles of Hope funds support services and outreach for people affected by breast cancer within the 8 counties of the Hudson Valley.
“All money raised stays here to help Hudson Valley residents with everything from paying bills while they are in treatment to scholarships for college-bound high school seniors whose lives have been affected by breast cancer,” Ms. Forood said.
“We are humbled and grateful to Adam and all those who have raised money for us throughout 2015 to enable us to achieve our mission.”
