Sponsorship Opportunities

Join the effort to end ALS and support the St. Peter ALS Regional Center

Please consider sponsoring the Cherry Blossom 5K Race for St Peter’s ALS Regional Center and Walk for Hope presented by Price Chopper/Market 32. The generous support from our corporate sponsors and more than 700 participants and festival attendees helped this year’s event generate over $22,000 in donations to our beneficiaries. These donations will fund the purchase of tablet-sized Eye Gaze communication devices that will allow local patients to communicate with their loved ones.

Since 2009 the Cherry Blossom Race for ALS has donated over $85,000 to the center. The event was promoted extensively by WNYT (News Channel 13) and received media coverage in the Daily Gazette’s Your Niskayuna and The Jewish World. The Ice Bucket Challenge became a national sensation with many celebrities, politicians and sports figures taking the challenge and raising much needed awareness about ALS, furthering the fight against this deadly disease, however there is still much work to be done.

The 10th annual Race and Walk, scheduled for Sunday, April 29, 2018, are run by the brotherhood of Congregation Gates of Heaven, a men’s organization dedicated to providing service and contributions to the local community. One hundred percent of event proceeds will be used to the ALS Regional Center at St. Peter’s Hospital as well as other service organizations and projects in the Capital District. We are continuously working to grow and improve the ALS Race and Walk and the race will again feature electronic chip timing by Albany Running Exchange Event Productions, the area’s premier race timing company.
