Brett Sears, Beginner 5K Coach

Hello team!  My name is Brett Sears and I am excited to be a running coach this year.  I am a physical therapist and exercise physiologist and have been a runner for 5 years, competing in many local 5k events.  In 2008, I completed the Boston Marathon as a charity runner, raising over $4000 for the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary.  Starting an exercise or running program can be a difficult thing to do, and I hope to make the transition into running an enjoyable one.

Brett will be holding his training runs at the Crossings park in Colonie on Wednesday nights at 6p for 8 weeks starting on July 20th with the last run September 7th.  If you have questions, please contact us at 518-441-8570Training is free and the personal rewards are priceless!


About CRSS Race for Hope

Since 2009, the Capital Region Special Surgery Race for Hope events have raised over $200,000, of which all monies have been dedicated to fundraising, since overhead costs are underwritten by Capital Region Special Surgery. This year's 5K will be held on Saturday, September 30, 2017. The major goal of the Capital Region Special Surgery – Race for Hope Fund, in partnership with the Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region, is to make grants to not-for-profit organizations/programs serving uninsured and underinsured patients who are experiencing a financial hardship related to a brain, head, or neck cancer diagnosis in the Capital Region (Albany, Columbia, Fulton, Greene, Hamilton, Montgomery, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, Schoharie, Warren, Washington counties). Thus far, these proceeds have been allocated to the following local 501c3 organizations: Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Capital Region, Inc. C.R. Wood Cancer Center at Glens Falls Hospital, Ellis Hospital Foundation, Inc., Saratoga Hospital—Mollie Wilmot Radiation Oncology Center, and patient services at St. Peter’s Cancer Care Center.
