It's not too early to get your team together for this year's Stars & Stripes Run~Walk! The 5K run, wheelchair race, and 2-mile walk will take place on Saturday, October 3, 2020 on the SUNY Poly campus. Runners and wheelchair racers can try to beat their best times, as the event will also be chip timed!
We encourage you to participate in honor or in memory of a loved one who has served our country, or simply to support our veterans. The registration fee is $25, which can also be applied toward fundraising incentive levels. The first 300 participants to register will receive a commemorative dog tag. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m., with opening ceremonies at 9:00 a.m.
All proceeds benefit Sitrin's Military Rehabilitation Program, which provides comprehensive and complimentary care to post-9/11 veterans and service members affected by combat-related conditions. Participants of the program receive physical, occupational, and aquatic therapy, counseling, Ecotherapy, Dance/Movement Therapy, Equine Assisted Therapy, and much more. In addition to a host of recreational activities, veterans and their families also participate in the annual Warrior Retreat at Camp Sitrin. Any post-9/11 veteran or service member who does not have insurance and chooses to be treated at Sitrin pays nothing for his or her care.
