Join us for the 4th annual Sasha’s Superhero Run, a fun family-friendly event, featuring 5k run/walk and a kids fun run in Mechanicville, NY. A major 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.
