Join us for the 4th annual Sasha’s Superhero Run. Due to ongoing pandemic and restrictions on social gatherings, 2020 Sasha’s Superhero Run has gone virtual. You can participate in this race at a place of your choosing. You can run or walk 5K distance any day between June 20th through June 28th, 2020. All participants will receive a virtual race bib and a 2020 commemorative edition of 2020 Sasha’s Superhero Run performance T-shirt. Race results will be self-reported, tallied and posted upon race completion. While we are sad about not seeing our friends and participants in person this year, we are grateful for the opportunity to hold this event virtually and to continue our fundraising.
A fundraiser for the Ronald McDonald House in Albany, with race proceeds helping provide housing, meals and support to families of seriously ill children, treated in the area hospitals. Because when a child is fighting for their life – having their family close by is the best medicine.
The race was organized by the family and friends of a local boy, Sasha, who passed away unexpectedly as a baby. The superhero theme of the event was adopted to honor all parents whose babies and children passed before their time, as it takes superhero strengths for a parent to go on after a child dies. This event helps loss families come together and honor the memory of their heavenly children.
