Year 4 brings exciting new partnership with the Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region!

Join us for our 4th Annual CRSS Race for Hope 2012 on Saturday, September 15th at 10am.  Details COMING SOON to register to RUN, WALK or DONATE.

The mission of the Race for Hope is to hold a 5k community walk/run to raise funds to provide financial assistance to patients affected by brain, head and neck cancer in the Capital Region.

This year we have embarked on an exciting new partnership with The Community Foundation for the Greater Foundation (CFGCR)!  This partnership will enable us to expand fund distribution to eligible recipients to include all Capital Region and Greater Capital Region hospitals, cancer care facilities, and community cancer care support programs.

Since 2009, the CRSS Race for Hope events have raised a total of $142,000, of which all monies have been dedicated to fundraising, since overhead costs are underwritten by Capital Region Special Surgery.  Thus far, these proceeds have been allocated to two local 501c3 organizations: Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Capital Region, Inc. and patient services at St. Peter’s Cancer Care Center.
