Sasha’s Superhero Run 2019 Results
Thank you to all who attended 2019 Sasha’s Superhero Run. In spite of cool temperatures and few raindrops, it was a wonderful day with so many smiles on the faces of our participants. Superheroes young and old have gathered from across the Capital District and beyond. Thank you for joining us in honoring our Sasha and honoring other babies, who deserve to be remembered and celebrated. We are grateful to our participants, sponsors, volunteers, friends and supporters for helping us raise much needed funds for the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
Join us for the 3rd annual Sasha’s Superhero Run. This event is a fundraiser for the Ronald McDonald House in Albany. All proceeds will help provide housing and support to the parents of seriously ill children, treated in the area hospitals. Because when a child is fighting for their life – having their parents or family close is the best medicine.
The 5K course will loop through the residential streets of the historic Mechanicville, NY. The course is flat – a perfect one for the personal best best time or an easy stroll. The race will start and end at Tallmadge Park. There will be family-friendly entertainment, kids activities, and a raffle. So come with your superhero attitude or dress up in your favorite superhero costume or cape.
The race was inspired by a local boy, Sasha Hudson White, who passed away unexpectedly at 24 days of age. The superhero theme of the event was adopted to honor all parents whose babies and children left before their time, as it takes superhero strengths to go on without your child.
So come run or walk with us, show off your superpowers, have a great time, and help us support a great cause!
