Why this Race?
To raise money for St. Peter’s ALS Regional Center, which provides much needed services to individuals (and their families) fighting the terribly debilitating and ultimately terminal illness sometimes called “Lou Gehrig’s Disease”.
We anticipate some 600 runners and walkers for the April 27, 2014 (and 6th annual) edition of the Cherry Blossom 5K Race for ALS. We started with just 125 runners in 2009. In 2013 over 330 runners and some 100 walkers together took part in this great cause to support St. Peter’s ALS Regional Center.
The Annual Cherry Blossom 5K Race for ALS is supported by a strong local community. The event has grown every year. We anticipate the next 5K Race and 1.5M Walk for Hope will draw over 500 runners and walkers. They and scores of their friends and families will show up the day of the race at Congregation Gates of Heaven’s Annual Cherry Blossom Festival.
It is a singular opportunity for sponsors to be seen in the community, and to be seen supporting a worthwhile cause.
Volunteer opportunities begin as early as 6:30 a.m. and go to about 11:00 a.m. We need help from set up to tear down and everything in between. It’s a great way to see your friends and neighbors all the while contributing to a great cause: St. Peter’s ALS Regional Center.
