Family Fun Run/Walk

The 2014 Miles of Hope Family Fun 5K Run/Walk, sponsored by the Mid-Hudson Road Runners Club with all proceeds benefiting Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation, will take place on Saturday, April 26.  Once again, the Town of Union Vale is providing the beautiful Tymor Park as the venue.

The 2014 event will be in honor of Marlene Weber and also in memory of Carla Bailey, who lost her battle with an aggressive breast cancer November 11, 2013. 

The survivors group photo and a special raffle for survivors only will be at 9:30 AM.

The 1-mile kids race kicks off at 10:00 AM followed by the 5K at 10:30 AM.  We encourage you to pre-register, preferably online (by April 22), but a mailed-in flyer postmarked by April 21, is OK.  Remember:  Kids are FREE if they are pre-registered ($10.00 on event day).  For the 5K, pre-registered participants are $25.00 ($35.00 on event day).

Marlene Weber, Honoree, 2014 Family Fun Run


“As owner of a predominately female oriented business, I have always been an advocate of women’s empowerment when it comes to their beauty, health and personal/professional beings. I am also of the belief system that knowledge is power and the more knowledge we have about our own bodies and health the more we can do to remain healthy and vital and in turn give to our families, community and careers,” said Marlene Weber.

In a word, Carla was EXUBERANT! I first met Carla via phone when she was first diagnosed in February 2011, and we just “clicked.” Bob and I finally got to meet her, Todd, and Spencer a few weeks later. As Carla progressed through her surgeries and treatments in 2011, her updates were hysterically funny. Yes, humor is a coping mechanism, and Carla certainly was the master at this. She made me laugh and cry at the same time. I loved trying to come up with different meals that included lentils, one of her favorites. I saw her beautiful earrings collection and made sure to add to it several times.
