Runners and walkers from around the city gathered at Flushing Meadows Park on Sunday, June 4, for the We Run for Hope 5K/10K Run and Walk. This event, held annually on National Cancer Survivors Day, is a great opportunity to support women with breast or ovarian cancer while also staying fit and active. Proceeds of the event benefit SHARE.
SHARE staff were on hand to distribute flyers and information, as well as to cheer on the participants. Those watching in the crowd had plenty of fun as well, including an exercise session (pictured far right below) led by Moving for Life, an organization that promotes mindful movement techniques aimed at cancer recovery and prevention.
Take a look at some of the photos from the event below!
SHARE is grateful to all the participants, and everyone who donated, at this amazing event. Your support is invaluable to us!
