Live.Laugh.LoveYourLungs. 5k Run / 1-Mile Walk this June is the first-ever event for Foundation 228 and we are very excited to have it in our hometown of Buffalo, NY! Time, talent and local businesses will be tapped to help execute the event, keeping Buffalo at the epicenter of everything we do – where we have nothing but #BuffaLove. We are partnering with Team Roswell to support lung cancer research initiatives at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center!
It is also a day we will forever celebrate our mother’s life, this year being particularly special as it’s our first full year without her. Her love for any city and nature, and taking walks to explore, make Delaware Park Rose Garden and Hoyt Lake a destination fitting for such an event!
Run or walk in person (or virtually!) on Sunday, June 2, at Delaware Park Rose Garden/Hoyt Lake at 8:30AM. The event will be held rain or shine. Registrations and donations can be submitted at www.foundation228.org; every person that raises $100 or more receives an exclusive item! Plus, the top three individual fundraisers and the top three team fundraisers, along with 5K finishers (by assigned age group), will receive awards event day.
Pricing increases to $35 after May 25th. Early packet pickup will be at Hotel Henry on June 1 from 8:00AM – Noon if you sign up before May 30.
Hotel Henry will generously donate $1.00 to Foundation 228 for each beverage ordered on race-day with a race bib. Event day parking has been reserved first come, first serve, at the Buffalo History Museum.
